Our friend Rita lost her DH Alan of 70 years this summer. When she told me that she now always sleeps in her recliner in the TV room, I wanted to make her a recliner sized quilt. My friend sewbeadit helped me pick out a design: a log cabin with one side of the block larger than the other, which makes for a nice wavy pattern.
The quilt is made with reproduction 1800ís fabrics in indigos and creams. (Blue is Rita's favorite color)
We took it to Julie Degrave of Pines and Needles Quilting and she did a lovely allover quilting design, which I've tried to show in the close ups.
Rita really loves it as you can see from her beautiful picture. She said she never in her life would have thought someone would make something like this for her.
