A Quilt for Lindsay

This last week, I was so excited when I received the quilt I made for Lindsay back from the quilter.  This quilt will adorn her bed by the end of August.  She is not very happy that it has to wait until then, but in order for me to enter it into our county fair, she must wait.

Kathy, from Stitch by Stitch, in Montana, did a fabulous job.  I used the granny square pattern from Lori at Bee in My Bonnet.   The fabric that Lindsay chose was Floral Gatherings by Moda.


I absolutely love the swirls in between all of the granny squares.  And the orange slices within the granny squares actually make the squares pop out.

To my surprise, I received an email from Kathy telling me that she had posted my quilt on her blog.  Be sure to check out her work and her post HERE.  She is a wonderfully talented quilter.  When I send her a quilt, I feel comfortable allowing her to "play" on them, being free to quilt whatever design she sees that the quilt needs.  It really frees me up from having to ponder forever over what design would work well with the quilt blocks and borders.
Thanks Kathy!  Here's hoping to a blue ribbon at the Humboldt County Fair this year.
