Or, an apt subtitle would be "One Very Special Quilt."
We were amazed at this gorgeous gift of gratitude, and while postponing any decision of the quilt's final disposition, we agreed that we would take turns keeping the quilt in our respective homes for a few months. And so, yesterday this lovely came to reside on the guest bed at our home.
I absolutely love how Georgina softly gathered her appliques, allowing them to puff out when she echo quilted around each applique. I've tried to show the marvelous texture she achieved and her wonderful hand quilted design that gives this quilt such definition. She used a light weight but thick batting which serves to accentuate her quilting even more.
Here are some close-ups of the blocks:
On another note, I finished baby Zachary's quilt late last evening, and will post some photos soon!
Happy Halloween for those who celebrate - we're lucky enough to live in a remote area where it stays quiet and peaceful, although we do have five feral cats, all jet black, who visit the outdoor kitty feeding station every evening!
