Started summer 2011, finished summer 2012.  My dear friend and neighbor Mary shares a new piecing method she calls 4-patch posie.  Then, knowing I don't have a walking foot and don't even try to quilt - tells me about 'quilt as you go'!  What a change in my sewing she shared that day.  I love you Mary!

I really couldn't afford to buy fabric in the dimensions needed - but I threw caution to the wind, bought something just being put out in the fabric store I adored, came home and turned off the AC for three weeks to pay for my purchase.  That's my mode of operation - I'm a lizard, have old fashioned high ceilings, huge windows and ceiling fans.  

I'm so glad I showed this to my mom.  I learned to sew from her mom, but she herself has never had the interest.  She loves this quilt and wants it in her house!

Wow. This quilt is really stunning in the close up view. Excellent choice and use of fabric. And the way you display the quilt over the railing on the porch with the gorgeous flowers adds yet another layer of artistry. I'd love to have this quilt in my house too.
