Carol's trip to Spruce It Up was made with joyful anticipation but at the same time, with a good deal of apprehension... butterflies were mentioned... but OH! Look at this gorgeous quilt. Stonehenge, batiks, and some glitter... so pretty. It's expertly pieced too, making quilting an easy job.
She chose Vanilla Cream pantograph by Anne Bright with Superior Threads King Tut Variegated #906, a beautiful mix of oranges, greens, browns, yellows. That's Carol in the center between Holly on the left and Bernice who came to offer support.
Quilting on Lolah though is Joan! Why, do you ask? Carol had some shopping to do... she did manage to quilt several rows of the design but she was willing to let others also get the chance to try out Lolah! What a great friend!
Holly even gave it a go while Carol sipped her coffee... :)
There she is... working the last row and the finishing touches!
What a gorgeous quilt Carol! A great job collaborating on the quilting ladies. It's a beauty and I'm sure the recipient will be thrilled to get it!
The stitching on the back is hardly noticeable but the texture is quite lovely!
There's something about fall colors that warms my heart and these are so pretty... Doesn't it look cozy?
Carol I hope your butterflies are gone now. Your two-toned binding will look awesome.
Lolah is loving all this attention girls... come back soon!
