Michelle, from California, made this very pretty Granny Squares quilt for her daughter.
She plans on entering it in the fair in August.
Here are a few photos of some of my favorite color combinations:
Michelle used some reds, pinks, mustard yellows, and green Civil War prints.
I quilted an orange peel design on the pieced Granny Square blocks.
(free-hand orange peels...uh, huh)
I swirled the background areas.
I like how the orange peel design leaves a secondary circle design.
Oh - the pink border fabric.....love!
I quilted a pretty feather in that pink border.
The backing.....I like how the pink orange peels just barely show up.
I love this quilt!
Thank you, Michelle - I loved every single minute of quilting this one!
I believe it deserves a big blue ribbon!!!
Are any of you working on a county/state fair quilt to enter this fall?
