...and, lets face it, it's a lot of fun to receive. =) Can I get an Amen? In July, Colleen @ Quilting Under the Sun gifted me with some fabric that was gifted to her because she knew I loved 3 Sisters fabric. That sweet kindness makes this quilt very special to me because I had the privilege of enjoying being given to and in return I get to enjoy giving this beauty to a dear friend. =)
The pattern I used was Bright Sky by Blossom Heart Quilts. I did change up the pattern a wee bit and added an extra star in the center. I also added a boarder so this quilt finished approx at 74"x74".
A few pictures of how I chose to quilt this quilt. I traced around various cardboard petal shapes and used my Juki to quilt it.
The creamy white I used is a cotton/linen blend. Loved working with it!
And here is the back...Love this quilt a lot!!
This quilt is for another dear friend of mine. A couple of years ago I purchased a jelly roll at a steep discount. I was sitting far too long just begging to be used. I followed the tutorial by 3 Dudes that Jenny @ Missouri Star Quilting Company shared.
Here is the back, but you knew that. =)

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my walking foot put two dark oil spots on a quilt I began quilting. To say I was upset is putting it mildly. I am going to try Grandma's Secret to get it out, but I need to finish quilting it first. A new walking foot is on order, so in the mean time, I am going to get back to my Farmer's Wife blocks.
Other than working (which is really playing), enjoying this weather and going on long bike rides with my precious hubby, that's about all I have been up to. I hope all is well for all of you, my friends!!
Have a very happy Sunday!!
