|I did another quilt for this customer recently, all in pink. This purple one is for her sister. The maker is a new quilter, and she does a wonderful job. Both quilts were flat and perfect!|
She wanted hearts and flowers, so I used the Panto Frolic.
|Purple, purple, purple!! I guessed she was a tween, and I was spot on!! Eleven years old.|
|At 84 x 98" it is a really big quilt. Notice there is no sashing or borders either. The customer said there are 70 tees in this quilt!! Yikes! With flannel backing and 80/20 batting, it weighs a ton.|
|Panto: Rounded square plaid|
|The flannel is really thick and heavy, adding to the weight of the finished quilt. I'm glad it isn't my job to do the binding!|
|I used a copper colored thread for the antique look.|
|This is the backing. After seeing this quilt, I want to dig out the old photos and make one of our family. My Dad as some really old pictures of relatives I could scan and use. Stay tuned for that!|
When I left the studio last evening. I enjoyed the lights Mr Wazoo put up. He has finished decorating the tree and will be out in the yard today cleaning up leaves and mulching the gardens for their winter sleep. He spent the day yesterday planting bulbs for the Spring.

|The colored balls look nice against the dusk sky and Epp Mountain.|
|Lighted icicles across the porch. The wind always wraps the flag up on the pole. We undo it every morning.|
