Ginger Belle

My Ginger Belle quilt came back from my awesome long arm quilter today. She is a very creative woman. I never tell her what to do on my quilts or what color thread I want and she never disappoints. It takes a lot of trust with someone to let them take your creation and hope they see your vision but Susan always does.
This quilt came out more autumn looking that I expected so she took it from there. I used almost all scraps from my stash in this one.
She used a wonderful leaf pattern that I think looks perfect.
And I am happy to report that our winter/fall-like weather left us for at least today. It was 59 degrees on my car thermometer so I did what all New Englanders do when it gets blazing hot like that-they open their car windows and sun roof! It was also Red Sox opening day at Fenway Park so spring must be here. If that's the case why do I still have snow in my front yard?

  4. Love your quilt, the quilting really suits the pattern well.
    Spring sure is taking it's sweet time arriving here (MI), we'll have one nice day and then they're predicting snow again! It sure is heavenly to have some occasional sunshine, though.

  6. Nice quilt! I like the "Irish chain" feel but with surprises like baby 4 patches stuck in. Nice machine quilting.

  10. What an awesome quilt. Love that you used scraps to make something so beautiful. Scrap quilting is my favorite. The leaf pattern is perfect. I love your blog description about keeping the cat hair off the quilts. We have three cats, and it's a constant battle to keep their hair off everything here as well!

  13. Very very pretty. I can imagine the apprehension of sending all your hard work off to someone else to quilt. She did a great job.

I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
