    Manquilter66 sent me this quilt for LAQ.

    I loved the quilt from the moment I saw the picture. :)
    It's kind of a sampler which is always fun for me because I just take each block as it comes and dress it up. Matt gave me complete freedom to do what I wanted..his only request was that I didn't quilt "Cinderella princess' or high heels"...I tried to refrain from doing that as hard as it was..I think I came up with a compromise! 8-)

    I Love the finish on this...but I think the quilting is difficult to see in the photos..

    This quilt has warm and natural batting and quilted everything freehand with a 26 INNOVA.

    Thanks for looking!

    Oh The border...In teh fabric there is a swilry vine...I just followed that fine and made feather plumes around it.....I thought it looked fabu!

    Really pretty, brings up visions of grandma's bed and how "safe" it was there.
