A VERY Special Quilt


image
I  can’t take credit for designing this quilt. This is the first and last mystery quilt I every made. It was designed by Jinny Beyer for one of her seminars.
I did select the fabrics to make it my own. I brought the lily fabric with me to the seminar. We were given the directions to cut and piece the twirling patchwork.  I selected the fabrics to coordinate with the lily fabric. The measurements were very odd sizes.
I finished the top during the seminar and was very pleased with it.
Like many things I make it didn’t get quilted. I had it pinned and thought I’d machine quilt it, but somehow it wanted to be hand quilted.
When I became aware of Robin Koehler and started to have her quilt some quilts for me I knew this was one for her to do.

She designed the quilting pattern and it is perfect to highlight the piecing.

She also designed the perfect quilting for the lily print and the borders.
I couldn’t be happier with it.

I got to see this quilt up close and personal, as they say. The quilting is beautiful...you really need to see in person to appreciate that!

Lovely finish, and I love the little vine tendrils quilted onto the blossoms!
