It's a quilt!


So after that earlier blog appeal, a picture came my way. Here is the finished top on my mother's bed. You can't see the side borders, but the flowers continue all the way around. I like it! We plan to get vines quilted in the black borders, and outline quilting around the applique. This is intended to raise funds for my sons' school, so I'll get some good straight on pix when it is done so we can sell lots of raffle tickets.

It is wonderful. I hope you will show it again after it is quilted. That will make a big difference.

There's something about black and solids that really really work.

I love it!

What's not to love about this quilt?!? It's really incredible -- love the flowers, love the fabrics, love the design. I bet you raise a lot of money for the school.

Oh, I just LOVE this. I hope you will let online people buy raffle tickets, too!

But if you don''t, well, I'll just have to make one. I really admire how you used different blacks- it gives a lot of depth and interest.
