another finish…


I think this might be one of my most favourite quilts that I have made so far. Originally, it was meant to be just a bed runner for my sister’s guest room.  However, I enjoyed making the blocks so much, it grew and it grew. She chose the colours and pattern in April when she was here visiting.  I had the top done by June, but with a busy summer I didn’t get around to quilting it until October.


I quilted this more then any other quilt I have done. I loved doing these loopy flowers in the center. I also added arches/fans to the border and some stippling too.


Looking great on my antique round chair.DSCN8792

Lily of course has to have final inspection…..I think it passed!


I made two pillow shams from the border print as well. (oops forgot to take pictures of them). 

I can’t wait to be a guest in her room!!
