The Playmates quilt that was started by Natalie in 1996 was finished by me over Memorial Day weekend. That's nearly a 20-year journey but there were years with no progress at all.
It is hand quilted--nothing too fancy. The center is a diamond grid . . .
. . . diagonal rows in the one-patches . . .
. . . chevrons in the edge triangles, a simple cable in the floral strip . . .
. . . and four lines following the border stripe.
The front :)
The back :)
The label :)
GSQ tidbits . . .
GSQ's BOM for June--Down By The Sea is a Double Disappearing Nine Patch pattern. I missed winning the blocks by one digit on my raffle ticket!
Twice a year the guild sets up a 'Drop and Shop' table where all sorts of goodies are for sale at bargain prices. This bird fabric caught my eye right away. It was in a packet called Nature's Neutrals from Keepsake Quilting.
And I couldn't resist Americana :)
Dawn was awarded a Viewers Choice ribbon for her Millennium Celebration at the show two weeks ago. Congratulations, Dawn!
Rachel surprised me with this beautiful eagle center medallion. Isn't it gorgeous?? Thank you, Rachel! I love it!
Is summer ever going to arrive--I mean warm, sunny days?
Have a great week!
