.....when my dear friend, Terri, visited this summer, she brought me a stack of solid fabric fat quarters that she had bought from an Amish woman when she and our other dear friend, Wanda, visited Pennsylvania.
Looking for inspiration, I browsed around on Flickr and came across this beauty. I won't share the picture here, but you should definitely click on the link and look at ALL of the pictures of this quilt ! Outstanding.
I was really taken with the core design. of this quilt; it has stayed in the back of my mind for over a month now, and just had to come out today. Having enough fabric to make a wallhanging, I wanted to be sure that I would actually hang something in our home to enjoy; so I went with the blue and the black from the stack of fabrics (the wallpaper in my kitchen has blue in the floral bouquets). I added the blue and white print for a nostalgic look, and to coordinate with the quilt kit that Wanda gave me (more on that later when I have a bigger space of time to make that quilt).
Tomorrow morning I'm supposed to keep Allyssia for a bit, and I want to give her all my attention. I so seldom get to play with the little ones, so I'm going to give it my best. She's such a sweetie pie.
