Quilting Bloggers held the swap this summer called "In the Good Old Summertime". My quilt arrived this weekend and here I am proudly showing it off. It was Saturday and my family was just coming home from the big 3 hour Oktoberfest parade and my quilting aunt Linda was with me. I looked in the mail box and what a pleasant surprise it was to see a package waiting for me. I opened the envelope right on the sidewalk by the front door. Out came this marvelous quilted burst of brightness. I just love it!!! Included in the package also was a box of very elegantly shaped chocolates. What could be better than a beautiful quilt and pretty chocolates?!!
The black and white flowers are accented by the most colorful buttons. The whole quilt is just what I love. I am sure it will go in my sewing studio someday. Right now, I want it were everyone sees it; so I have hung it in my kitchen against the tile. As soon as you open the back door and step into our kitchen it gets noticed. I have had several other quilts that have hung there in the past, but this one definitely looks the best!
"Funky Flowers", by Gina Smith is perfect for my kitchen. I know it will look marvelous in my sewing room too, because I have curtain toppers made in the same delicious color scheme.
