I hate to send this one back
I'm finished quilting Mom's 4 Patch and I wish I didn't have to send this one back to her.
Laurie Ann commented on my color coordination and I can't take too much credit for this one. It's kind of a convoluted story but in a nutshell - Mom had bought a bundle of fabric at Tiny Stitches when she was visiting me, made a quilt top and sent it to me to quilt last year. The woman helping me care for my father-in-law fell in love with that quilt and Mom let me keep the quilt and give it to Emmorgean to thank her for her help in caring for my father-in-law.
So what does that have to do with this quilt? Well, I gave her these fabrics to replace the ones she'd used in the top she gave me. Most of them came in a fat quarter bundle - again bought at Tiny Stitches and I bought the border to coordinate at the same time.
Norma asked how I planned on quilting it - well, the fabrics are pretty busy so I did what I usually do on scrap quilts - I used a pantograph. This one is called Frisky Feathers by Lorien Quilting.
