    Aunt Verna's Cottage- quilted

    I created this quilt top from an image of a pattern I saw. I didn't have the pattern. It worked well for me for using a large scale print that I didn't want to cut too small.
    The two individual block components are Square in a Square, and Indian Star.
    Then I got a few suggestions on the board last spring for making the borders. (The burnt orange fabric was a fQ I got from my son for Mother's day, and I wanted to incorporate it right away into this project that I had just started the day before. It was not part of my original idea but I like it now.) This is a very generous full size.

    The top sat around for a while: a lady in waiting, as they say. It has been professionally quilted. The quilter and I collaborated quite a bit on the quilting theme of the quilt. We both love it and I am so pleased!

    Those two block designs look great together and I'm going to have to borrow that border idea - the corners look like the old-fashioned photo corners. Nice idea.

    What a great way to incorporate the fq. I would have never thought of anything like that. Very creative and very pretty.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
