When my daddy died in June 2010, my caring guild members each gave me a fat quarter in remembrance. Over my retreat weekend, I was able to get it all pieced and today I finished up the quilting. Now I need to add the binding and then I'll hang it in a prominent place to remind me of the sunshiny home where he will reside forever with our sweet Lord. Thank you, ladies. It was a precious gift.
the quilting is just lovely. Very ethereal-ReplyDelete
That was fast. Glad you got it finished and it is just beautiful. Now, how about our problem blue/brown one? LOL Great seeing you last week. It was great.ReplyDelete
I've been lurking & learning from your blog for a few months & don't think I've ever commented. But I absolutely love your work. This is such an interesting quilting motif. I love the quilt too but afraid as a brand new longarmer, my attention is on the quilting these days. Well done on such an innovative wreath.ReplyDelete

The pattern is called Flower Boxes and is in the book, Scrap-Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett. It is the 3rd quilt I've made from that book (Island Chain, Blessings from the Hollow and this one) and I have another cut out - Town Square) and am considering one other. Great book with all patterns made from 2.5 inch strips. All of them are pictured here on my blog.ReplyDelete
