"Flower Bouquets" by Gloria Hropvich

This is the quilt I made for my daughter.  I decided to go with "loud" 
colors and when I chose what fabric to use, I cut circles from each 
block and inserted a white block underneath of Flower Bouquets that I 
colored with crayons, pressed between paper and attached to the 
underside of the top block.  I used small pieces of the "Loud Fabric" 
for the trim around.  I hadn't been quilting very long so I had a 
couple friends hand quilt it for me.  The hand quilting is absolutely 
gorgeous!!



Thanks for letting me Show & Tell. 

Gloria Hropvich, Delaware.

Gloria,  A woman after my own heart.  I love your quilt.  I especially like the quilting.  I am a long time handquilter and that would have been something I would have loved to do.  Your friends did a beautiful job.

Thank you to all of you who posted.  Yes I am very proud of how well the quilt looks.  The quilting of it really "makes" it!!  One of the quilters is in her 90's!!  

I appreciate all the comments and mostly enjoy the magazine and what I have learned from other readers during the past couple years.  Gloria Hropvich

Well, Glo, you've done it again. You'll be running out of people to make quilts for if you aren't careful. Dar

Love your creativity.  I have some of Esther in me, as you also do, and that way we never get bored!  The quilt should be named "Tribute to Mama".
