Because I am a registered business with a license and I charge sales tax to my customers, I must do this once a year. Yup, I hand over every penny I collect to the state of WA. I'm not sure what happens to this money, just know it's what I have to do.
Because I have this business, I get the pleasure of working on quilts like this one. Can you say Fabulous? This is a Pam Bono pattern, Flowers in the Cabin.
Quilt measures 88 x 102. How many pieces are in each block? Not even going to guess, I just know there are a lot of strips and squares of different widths and lengths and only the most organized quilter could keep this all straight.
That little pink square in the center is part of the sashing that just blends into the blocks. The piecer, NT, did not want feathers, but liked the idea of wreaths of leaves. Of course, stitch in the ditch was also a big part of the machine quilting.
I think this was a great choice and I just can't get enough of this quilt. Leaves were quilted into the brown border as well.
French General for the back........ so nice.
It will be worth your time and effort, sorry for over posting pictures, but seriously, I L-O-V-E this piece and I'm so glad it's going on my friends bed so she will enjoy it for many nights.
Yup, this is the reason we don't by a 'bed in a bag' We make our own and this is why.
