2 back from the quilter

042

I started this quilt some time ago (I just noticed it was in 2010…oh my!) as part of Erin’s Florabunda quilt-along.  I got 7 of the 12 blocks done before setting them aside for a break.  Last summer I decided I probably wouldn’t finish the rest, so instead, made plans to use these 7 in a quilt all by themselves.

And I’m really happy with it. 

Thank you Erin for the pretty applique designs.

I admire my quilter, JoLynn.  She always does very nice work.

She quilted this one too.

I love the sweet little extras she added…children and letters all around the border.

Makes it really special…

And I was excited when I found this fabric for the back… perfect!

I’ll be spending the next few evenings binding them…

Then back to work on Christmas stuff!

Such a fun time of year!

Aweseome quilt and the quilting is beautiful. I have been debating about buying the applique pattern or not, but seeing it again in your setting makes me think it will be on my XMAS list. Thanks.

Oh, I want that Florabunda collection now. I have it saved in my Etsy shopping cart for that moment when I'm at my weakest! :) Beautiful Fig Tree sampler at that! Great idea! Love your quilter's work on the ABC quilt too, perfect touches!
