I realized that while I do a lot of admiring of everyone's gorgeous quilts on this forum, I've shied away from posting photos of my own. I started quilting four years ago - had no idea what I was doing, but that didn't stop me, LOL. I am a completely undiciplined quilter. Anyway, here is a quilt that I made for my niece from paisley fabric samples I found at an estate sale. It is predominantly brown, but for some reason the other colors pop in the photos.
The binding is a ripply mess. I had just gotten my first embroidery machine and went a little nuts with all sorts of random messages along the edges. I wanted to re-do it, but she loved it and grabbed it away!
She is very ill with a rare form of leukemia and spends several nights each week in a hyperbaric chamber. This was meant as a comfort quilt, but the silly woman hung it over her fireplace!
