    Below are pics of my "Evening Bloom" quilt that I finished today. It's based on a pattern of that name from the book called "Country Inn" by Barb Adams and Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs. Their version was a queen size, but I wanted a king size so I added the 3 borders to make it 100" x 100". All of the applique is machine done with a blanket stitch and I quilted it on my longarm. The bulk of the fabrics are from the "Rouenneries" line by French General, and I supplemented them with others that fit with them.

    I started this quilt back in September 2010 on a business trip to India. In the evenings and weekends I sat in my hotel room, busily cutting and fusing shapes for the blocks. Glad to finally have this one completed!

    Me, too, and then I thought, "wonder what hotel he must have been in where he had an iron and surface to work on?"

    Your work is always an awaited topic, Eddie!

    Very nice Eddy. Your freehand quilting really sets off those appliques beautifully.
