My friend D wanted to make a memory quilt, then it became two, and then she started down the slippery slope of quilting as a full time hobby. She was very clear to me that she would work on one project, get it finished and THEN start her next project. Hmm, I have 2 quilts to quilt for her, and this is one that just arrived. It's from a McCalls magazine in late 2009, but here is the story of this pattern. Thank you Barbara Brackman!
Welcome to my world, D. I started this project as a Four Block quilt, but not D, she had to make the full sized pattern. She mixed it up a bit with the borders, did fusible applique and did a zig zag stitch around all the pieces. I've basted one other piece that is going to be hand quilted, she has several tops in process and a room full of fabric and books and patterns! As for the quilting on this one, she said "whatever I want" Well, you just know it's going to have feathered wreaths in the center of the circles. This won't get started until the fall, I know it will be on my machine for at least 3 - 4 weeks.
