Yesterday after some of my homework was completed, one of my friends and I
took this most beautiful quilt and entered it into a local fair!
I wanted to take some photos before entering it to showcase the talent
in our Anyways Quilters group. Christine captured this beauty to a T. ( as in Tea and well
Totally) lol She is by far the most amazing quilter I have ever come to know and love.
T-cup in the forefront and Sumatra really wanted to be part of this
photo shoot, with clear instruction from me, that they were not to jump on this
quilt at all. And they didn't but certainly managed to squeeze some peek a boo time.
There was something about this quilt, besides the beauty that both had to come out
So she just went to the other side and gave THAT LOOK to T-cup.
Now to this Quilt. Every part of it was done by hand. All appliqued and needle turned.
There are t-cups, spoons, strawberry shortcakes, muffins, chains of daisies, embroidery..
YOU name it, it is there. It took Christine 9 months to complete this...
Even the borders with all the fine quilting ....alll done by HAND.
I tried to capture some of the detail up close...isn't it just beautiful?
The spoons for instance have 3 layers, to give it a 3 D appearance and with the addition
of the bow. Wellll you know I am almost teared at it's overall beauty.
This pattern came from a book. It is sold out in book form however available in kindle.
Christine, followed her pattern to perfection, subbing the quilters design from a red gingham to a pink gingham in its border which to me, gave even more impact. I am most certainly interested in creating this quilt into a lap quilt and having rows of tea cups, and then spoons, and then shortcakes and then daisy chains. I have been working on a drawing. We will see, it would take me years to complete ...wink...or I could just keep this one...
By the way, the ladies at the fair just gushed all over it...Audrey and I would
be soooo surprised if she did not take Regionals.
Today, I must catch up on some papers
and work on a special PIN addition for you tomorrow.
