A new quilt for my bed---and I'm not sure I like the colors anymore. :) I finished the top some three years ago or so, when I liked blue and yellow together. Now I'm not so sure. The quilt is bright. Very sunshiny bright. I may put it up and bring it out next spring. The quilt pattern is called "The Yellow Brick Road," and I remember it was a fun pattern to piece together.
I had planned to quilt this myself, but when my neighbor and friend asked for quilt tops to "practice" on, using her new long-arm quilting machine, I gladly gave her this. (Otherwise, it would still be waiting another 3 years or more for me to quilt it). Debbie used a floral pantograph quilting design, and I love it! Her work is exceptional! I told her she doesn't need practice; she's already a pro. And she's open for business if you're in need of quilting. :-)
Debbie also quilted Emily's Vintage Sheet Quilt using a free motion floral design that I think is absolutely perfect for this quilt. I decided to put the quilt on my rarely-used dining room table for a few weeks so that I can enjoy it every time I walk by. This quilt makes me happy!
