    Watercolour Quilt for my Godmother

    Thanks to the generosity of a wonderful member of this board, I have been able to make this quilt for my dear Godmother.
    She recently lost her husband and is moving into a new house so I wanted to make something special for her as a house warming gift. It is the first time I have attempted a watercolour quilt and with the instructions given to me it wasn't as hard as it looks. It isn't perfect and I'm sure I would do better with the next one, but I am happy with it. I used a flannel as the backing to keep her nice and warm this coming winter. I hope she likes it.
    This board is fantastic, thank you again, you know who you are Name:  Godmummy's quilt.JPG

    Woody, that is so beautiful. You did such a beautiful job and I love the cross that you worked in there.

    I just love your quilt. You did a beautiful job.
    I did a watercolor for my church as a wall hanging. I don't think mine turned out as well as yours did. I would love to be that talented.
