Flower Quilt


There was no wind whatsoever today until I went outside to take this photo. Every time I took a shot the breeze would lift the bottom of the quilt. I was too lazy to go back inside to get the masking tape to hold the quilt flat.

This quilt is a Christmas gift for my younger sister. The floral blocks were made by different people and I've had them packed away since 2004 when the row by row swap finished.

I have shadow quilted around each of the flower sprays, stitched in the ditch around the dark green borders and stippled the cream background.

I still have to make the label and think up a name for the quilt, any suggestions?

Thanks to all who have sent messages and prayers for my mothers, I'm so pleased that they are both on the mend.
