I get that question a lot from my family and friends who might see a beautiful quilt in my house or on the frame. This one, though, might just be an all time favorite.
First, it's red and white and I love that combination. Especially now, with Valentine's Day around the corner.
But, also, it's my friend Sharon's. She's been crafting this for a loooong time. We've been together on many sewing retreats and sewing days when she's been hard at work pulling her fabrics from the boot box and meticulously stitching them together.
And last but not least. I offered a quilting job up for an auction our Guild hosted last year. We were raising funds for the Jimmy Fund (which supports cancer treatment in children and adults through the Dana Farber clinic in Boston.) Our fundraiser was in support of our friend's son who has leukemia. Sharon won the auction with this quilt in mind.
Not only is this quilt beautiful, it has an all around good feeling. I liked working on it.
I'm almost finished. I have a little quilting to go, remove the chalk and tie the loose threads....
The pictures aren't great... but I promised a sneak peak...
