Unfinished Quilt for Hanna
Here is the quilt top for granddaughter Hanna's birthday next month. The longarm quilter called and said she wouldn't be able to get it done before I left to go back home. The plan was to quilt it with a butterfly pattern. Since I won't have time to take it to another longarm quilter when I get home, I will probably quilt it myself. My thoughts are to put butterflies and flowers in the plain blocks where there are no appliques. Next question is...hand or machine quilt? Do I have enough time to hand quilt? I have to think about that.
Also I usually name all my quilts, but nothing has come to me for this one. Hanna loved the quilt I made Cora. This quilt has some of the same fabrics and it has the same appliques. I used the snowball block from Cora's quilt. But this quilt does not look like Cora's quilt...You can see it in My Gallery. It's called "Trellis Garden". The only thing that comes to mind is The Flight of the Butterflies. Thoughts anyone?
The quilt is made from 100% cottons, machine pieced, machine appliqued.
