We spent the morning picking out patterns for some of her fabric groups. Nancy likes big bright bold florals and trying to find patterns that show off the big prints is a challenge but I think we founds some winners. Hopefully she will bring back the finished quilts and let me show them off to you.
The afternoon was spent sewing. Nancy worked on a Rails and Squares quilt. I recently made the same quilt pattern using a soft romantic pink rose fabric with a lavender frame and white background. Nancy liked the simplicity of the pattern. Her fabrics: Bold 60's floral, maroon with pink pokka dots for the frame and a sunshine yellow background. Wow! I think what I love most about quilting is how two people can take the same pattern and make very unique quilts. (Shhhhh....I like Nancy's better, don't tell her.)
I made wonderful progress quilting the blue delft quilt. The center is done. Now what should I do in the border?
