Some people commented on the quilt which I showed a small portion of on yesterday's post. I don't think I ever posted this one on my blog because I made it about 6 or 7 years ago, long before my blogging days. It was from a kit called "Garden Delight", designed by Lydia Quigley, from the Quilt Collectors Series.
I made it with my mother in mind. She lives in the country and wanted something for the twin size bed in her spare room. But I was too slow for her. When she finally purchased a denim 'quilt' at a yard sale for $200 I knew that I had to finish the quilt. The denim quilt was not worth $200 and I felt bad that she had paid so much for it! If I had completed the quilt earlier she would not have bought the denim one. The entire quilt did not fit into one photo, so I took the top half in this shot..........
.........and bottom part in this photo. I used almost every method of quilt construction. It is machine pieced, hand pieced, hand appliqued and paper pieced. I machine and hand quilted it. When I finally gave it to my mother, she almost cried!
I even added some personal things that weren't in the pattern, like the appliqued dog and trees block. This was my mother's dog at that time, Also the appliqued flowers were an after thought because my mother loves flowers,
I'll be back soon.
