This is the quilt I’ve been working on for the past week. My friend, Betty, has The Village Mercantile in Boonville, Indiana, which was my local quilt shop when I lived in Kentucky. The Village Mercantile is such a neat shop. The shop hop for their area (southern Indiana) is June 21 – 28 and here’s the website for the shop hop. If you’re in that area, or can get to that area, you might want to check out the shop hop.
Anyway, I quilted Betty’s quilt. The them is Sunflower Summer. You can contact Betty if you might be interested in a kit for this quilt. The quilt is just beautiful. I so much miss not seeing all the new fabrics. I always feel bad when I say I like the back better than the front but I only mean that in the sense that the quilting shows up on the back and hardly shows up on the front at all.
Here’s the back of Betty’s quilt. I was determined to do this quilt without feathers but I just couldn’t do it. The green strips around the blocks begged for feathers.
And, here’s a closer shot of the back side. I hope Betty likes it. I still have it here and she hasn’t seen it yet but I have her permission to post photos.
And now . . the major huge, heavily quilted top is done and I’m free to do what I want to do for two days because . . IT’S TIME FOR A QUILTATHON!
