    "Hope's Rose Garden" - Quilt

    I am going to try and get a picture of her quilt posted. I started on this quilt Feb. 15, 2012 and just finished it today 6-21-12. It is a king size. Hope is a dear friend, 92 years old and will be the Grand Marshall in our annual "West of the Pecos Rodeo Parade" next week. She is from a pioneer ranching family in our county here in Pecos, Tx.. Pecos is listed as Home of the World's First Rodeo. I am going to deliver her quilt tomorrow.
    I fussy cut, then machine appliqued each rose on the front. The front is cream colored. The backing is made from two pima cotton sea foam green sheets, that she chose. The quilt is reversible and I do hate hand work, but it is necessary when doing a reversible quilt, there is roughly 269 feet of hand work on this quilt.
    I do hope I can get a picture of this quilt posted. Wish me luck, Well it looks like both pictures are going to post. The first picture is the back of the quilt. Thanks for gazing at my some of my work.Gerbie
