QJ - Warm Wishes (#1)


QUILT JOURNAL - WARM WISHES (#1)

Machine Pieced
Machine Quilted
Lap Size - 45" x 60"
Started - May 12, 2004
Completed - August 16, 2004

Made for a Dear Friend -

Pattern - Warm Wishes
Designed by Sherri Bain Driver, GM Senior Editor -
"Quiltmaker" - #94 - Nov/Dec ' 03

My friend’s passion was chrysanthemums and she won numerous awards -

I found a beautiful pink/peach Japanese style floral with gorgeous "mums" and some turquoise, pink, and yellow batiks -


I thought the "Warm Wishes" pattern would be perfect. I had to piece the borders to bring it up to lap size and ran out of fabric on the bottom left so I used some turquoise -


I used a "Warm & Natural" batt and quilted diagonally across the blocks. The combination of batik fabric and the batt made it feel very stiff. It also turned out much "pink-er" that I originally thought it would be. It is really bright - but the colors are "happy" colors and she said that she liked it - so that's good -

The label says it all -

"Friends are the perennials in the garden of life" - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
