My sista's surprise Christmas quilt
This is what I have been working on most of the year. It's a Cal-king quilt I made for my sista's bed. The flowers, vines, and leaves are hand appliqued using needle turn. It was a very challenging quilt for me to make. I've never done hand applique and never heard of needle turn until I started this project in Feb 2011. Now I LOVE hand work and especially needle turn! I really learned a lot creating the quilt.
The center star is Marsha McCloskey's Feathered Star pattern. The overall quilt pattern is from Laura Shotwell, Fig Leaf Quilt Shop.
Phew! I'm glad it's finished and on it's way to my sista!
