Gorgeous Quilt

This post requires a great deal of generosity on my part because this is the opportunity quilt for the Nitetime Needlers Quilt Guild in Kansas City, MO and I really want to win it and the more people who buy tickets, the less my chances are for winning this gorgeous quilt but being the kind and generous and helpful person that I am, I’ll share it.

My friend from KC, Jeanne, along with some fellow guild members did the piecing and Jeanne did all of the quilting. Her friend, Ellen Fox, helped her with ideas and inspiration.

Jeanne's Quilt

This quilt is just beautiful. I’ve seen it in person, while it was being pieced and after it was quilted. Jeanne did such a great job piecing and quilting it (and she’s a longarm quilter if you want this kind of quilting on your own tops!).

The quilt is currently hanging at The Quilter’s Station in Lee’s Summit, MO so if you’re in the area, stop by and see it in person.

If you would like to contact Jeanne about getting tickets or about getting her to do some quilting for you, here e-mail address is: [email protected]

    Judy,
    That quilt is just breath-taking. My daughter lives in Lee’s Summit. Hmmm. Maybe it is time for a visit. Thanks for sharing this with us. I also wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed all your posts from your trip to Louisiana. Our SIL is from Lafayette. (I’m sure that isn’t spelled right.) His dad lives in Lake Charles. I love seeing anything about the area he is from. Love your blog, in fact. There, how about this as a long-winded comment? LOL

    Stunning, stunning, stunning. The pictures are wonderful so the ‘in-person’ view must be beyond belief.

    What a lovely, spring-y quilt! I hope they raise a lot of money from it before they draw your ticket.

    It’s so well coordinated, it must be from one fabric line. Can you tell us what that is?

    Thanks so much for the kind words. Judy is so wonderful for putting Fairy Frost on here for us.

    Rebecca: Believe it or not, the fabrics are from all kinds of places and lines. I started out with a pansy material and a beautiful light green for myself and started collecting for a quilt for me. Then found 4 wonderful, coordinating fabrics from Northcott (Quest for a Cure) called Rose Garden Tea, and then just kept adding. I showed these fabrics to our guild board and they loved them, so I got to shop (bummer) for making this one. I got quite a few fabrics at The Quilter’s Station where it’s on display.
