My little friend, Kaye, is in her 70's. This is her first quilt. It's 108" x 108"
We called it her "Church Ladies" quilt, as it was a group of friends from church that did it as a block of the month. They used a free online pattern from http://www.blockcentral.com/ (Patchwork Panache). She also told me that she has never really sewn much. (?!?) What a great way to learn to quilt ~ with sampler blocks and friends!
I freemotion-quilted some feathered vines and wreaths, roses, grids and curlicues. My girls added the binding for her, then little Mrs. Kaye took it home last night to sleep under her beautiful creation!
Here's the same quilt made by my friend Rachel that I quilted a couple of years ago. She won a Sweepstakes prize at the county fair!
