    Marie's quilt...........

    This is my friend, Marie's, quilt....... isn't it gorgeous. She made it, about 90%, at our quilt retreat. I knew it would be SCRUMPTIOUS! She designed it, machine embroidered the flowers and I quilted. The quilt measures 78 x 99" and those little blocks are 1 1/2" square!!!! The batting is Warm and White and I used Metro Embroidery thread. The quilt is very pastel.....I had to enhance the colors so we could see the quilting.

    How long was your quilt retreat? Two years. It would take me that long to sew it all together. It's beautiful and your quilting is perfect. Great job by both of you.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
