I have been so excited lately! So many new quilters have come by the shop to have their quilts finished. Christa’s quilt is no exception.
Great choice of fabrics
Christa’s Quilt, while a simple design, utilizes some very beautiful fabrics. I am sure your grandmother, Margret Lewis, had a hand in helping pick them out.
The pattern may seem familiar, and there is a good reason for that. Christa and Avery are friends. They were lucky enough to begin this journey in the same class.
Loading on the long arm and choosing a pattern
After loading this quilt on the long arm, it was plain to see just how much fun the fabrics are!
Choosing a pattern
Sometimes you do not get to choose a quilting pattern, the quilt does it for you! This time was one of those. Take a good look at the images. You will see a cute, daisy pattern dancing along the borders.
This pattern is what made the choice easy! The quilting pattern, done in a pale pink is … you guessed it! Daisies!
Whether the quilting was on the lighter fabrics or the deep, bold ones, the pattern just fits.
A special surprise
Young people never fail to surprise and please me. Shortly after Christa received her quilt, she presented an envelope to me.
The front of the card reminded me of long arm quilting but it is the inside that touched my heart.
I was speechless (which as many of you know is a true rarity). Her heartfelt words touched my heart and made my entire week! I can’t wait to see what this young lady comes up with next.
Thank you, Christa!
