    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.
    How precious!
