This quilt was the brain child of my daughter Britt. She had a vision. A very specific vision. Knowing that I love a challenge, she got me to collaborate with her. I love working with her. She is one of the most creative and gifted people I know. (Yes, I am biased!)
We started this one in July of 2013! Yep! That's right! I was shocked after going through my Flickr photos to learn that!
This quilt required a few partial seams. I shy away from that sort of thing. Partial seams, Y-seams, pretty scary stuff! It all fell on Britt's shoulders! And she did a fabulous job!
So, this pinned quilt hung on my quilt ladder forever. I waited and waited for someone to quilt it. Someone who started this thing! I kept waiting. Hoping. Obviously for over a year until I couldn't take it any longer! I pulled it down and made a quilting plan.
The big square is a tightly quilted cross-hatch using a coordinating thread. Very random. The lines are extended slightly on to the blue. I went vertical and horizontal with the remainder of the quilt. It mimics the cross-hatch, but on a bigger scale.
On a different note! I received an early birthday gift. Again, Britt was the mastermind!
My little card! Guess who's going to the AQS Chattanooga Quilt Show? That would be me! And Britt! It will be the first quilt show I have been to and I'm looking forward to it. I have often thought about entering a quilt in a show. This will be a research mission. Could I, should I?!
I do have a couple in progress quilts to show off.
This one is almost finished! I'm sewing the binding on right now. It's a modified version of my 'soon to be' pattern.
Woven stripe baby quilt. Ready to quilt once I figure out what I want to do!
