- Hello again, It has taken me a while but I finally got this image uploaded to the blog. I am trying to use a real camera instead of my phone camera ..... so far, not so good.
This is the quilt my forever-friend (Marcie) and I made while she was visiting here last month. The fabrics she chose were all jewel toned batiks from Indonesia. Gorgeous !!! Working together, we got this queen sized bedspread (110" x 104") done in about 10 days or less. It is an Eleanor Burns (Quilt In a Day) rendition of Lover's Knot.
Because Marcie knew she would never get it hand quilted or machine quilted, I finished it for her into a duvet cover using another batik for the back and binding. That way when she got home she could just slip her current bedding into the duvet cover and immediately have a brand new look for her room.
Presto!! Change-O !! And there you go !!
I am working on the pillow shams to match now .... but have been a bit side tracked ....
My DD2 that got married in June, has been here for several days with her 2 daughters. They came to say goodbye as they are moving to the Washington, DC area .... 3000+ miles away. :-( Her new hubby is in the Coast Guard and was transferred shortly after their wedding. She, her 2 DDs and kitties will be driving across country the end of this week.
By the way, the Quilt In a Day shop is about a 1/4 mile from my house. It has been fun to watch Eleanor's business grow over the years. Luckily for Marcie, the shop was having a big sale when we went looking for fabric for this ambitious project !!!
