In 1986 I hand appliquéd this Tulip Garden quilt for my 3 yr old youngest daughter. Fast forward to October 2015 I had been practicing background fill in feathers on a muslin, I remembered this UFO. Over the years I would take it out and wondered how I would hand quilt it. My daughter is now 33 and expecting her third baby, if it's a girl this will be hers.

Twins are due in October so this Mimi has been BUSY sewing nursery bedding.
The crib quilts I made with hand embroidered blocks made by her grandmother in the 40's and by a family friend who made" kitten days of the week" tea towels as a wedding gift for this precious couple. Girl's quilt has inset bias ruffle and boy's quilt has inset prairie points.

I have worked over a year on this quilt. My first Block of the Month! Never would have thought I would have had the patience to only do one block a month for any project. The blocks are large 18".
This King size quilt top is a combination of my Guild's BOM and Thread Head Joanne's Quilt Along. Joanne's blocks are 7". Having been intrigued by quilts with different size blocks in offset settings this seemed to be a good way to try something different.
I love the upholstered headboard against the dark green Jacobean floral draperies. No longer using the canopy.
The Quilt will be a change from the Blended Medallion quilt with reverse sham and the blue batik puzzle quilt.
I also love to change my bedding often.
The navy chenille bedskirt will go with all so I suppose I have talked myself into quilting this king size quilt top!!!
Thanks for providing this venue to share quilts!
