I began making this large lap quilt (59"square) last year, not sure who would end up with it, but knowing I would figure it out eventually; I got it to the binding stage in January...
...then, with the passing of my Uncle Alister this March, I knew straight away
that this would become a gift for his wife, Aunty Sue.
I spent a LOT of time at their house as a child - it was pretty much a second home -
so I wanted to give her something special.
The prints are from a layer cake of 'Sundrops' by Corey Yoder for Moda.
The prints are a mixture of florals and polka dots in a range of corals, greys, lemons and greens.
This is a 'sister' quilt to the auction quilt I made last year.
The pattern is 'Cake Slices' by Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs.
I quilted a mixture of ribbons, echo diagonals, and straight lines.
The binding is a gorgeous coral fabric, with the backing being pieced from
a white/grey eyelashes print and a soft green words print.
|Aunty Sue was really thrilled - it went straight onto her bed!|
'Kia ora' to all my visitors via Kelly's Needle and Thread Thursday linky party!
Have a lovely Easter!
