|Anna's Wedding Quilt|
Here are some of the details... Anna and I picked out the fabric together when we were on a business trip in the summer of 2011 in Maryland at Capital Quilts, which was a very nice quilt store. The pattern is a Blooming Nine Patch from Traditions with a Twist, which is one of my favorite quilt books. I've made this quilt before, but never one so big (it's 96"x108"). There are 10 different batiks in this quilt which blend out from an aqua to turquoise to purple to a greenish-blue. I LOVE this quilt and I'm happy there is a little fabric left over to make myself a memento.
|Here I am with Anna at her wedding. Wasn't she a beautiful bride?|
Anna got married on May 5, 2012, and I started working on her quilt on my annual Berkshires trip later that May of 2012. I finished the top this past February. It was quilted by Shirley Gammon. This is a really wonderful pattern, very easy, but A LOT of pieces, especially if you enlarge it to king size! It is simply a 9-patch block, alternating with a plain patch block, set diagonally on point.
This quilt goes in the mail (with lots of insurance) on Monday.
Doing the Happy Dance!
Pugs and kisses,
