Made this top a very long time ago and put it in the "Finished Top Drawer".
A coworker asked if I could make her a couple of quilts. She had no design or color ideas in mind so instead of starting from scratch, I brought in the contents of "the" drawer. This was her first choice.
This top was a real test for me. I sew fast but not very carefully. Strips that are 1 1/2 inches wide are tough. Wiggly seams are much more noticeable. But all in all it was a success. A good challenge for me.
I sent my quilt to Sarah Russett of Sweet Potato quilts for quilting. She is a long arm quilter in NY. We mail quilts back and forth with no issues. She did another terrific job.
She totally captured the mood of the quilt.
If you are interested in getting in touch with Sarah her email is firstname.lastname@example.org .
I think the back was a major winner. It is all red stars that look like fireworks on a creamy white background. It was a Christmas remnant at the LQS.
I delivered it this morning and she was thrilled. She did pick 2 tops. The other is also back from Sarah. Will need to bind that this week. I think it would be a good hand sewing project for the opening of the Olympics Friday night. Go USA.
