Default Garden Party

Hello All,

this was a scrap quilt that I made up to practice some quilting designs that came with the pattern. I also made one in black with saturated color scraps, havent started that one yet...but soon. While I was talking on phone to my mom about this quilt she mentioned that my sister needs an gift for a friends daughter who is making her confirmation and this quilt would be perfect. LOL, seriously it is hard to tell mom "no" about anything. So I said fine, since this quilt didnt have a home and was just for me to play with. Then mom lets slip that it needs to be shipped and at sisters house no later than april 9th I swear she thinks I am magical! Well I did it, suppose that is part of the problem here, I keep meeting her high expectations. LOL. Oh well! Ok without further ado, here is "Garden Party"

Quilt Name: Garden Party
Pattern: In the Meadow by Judy Madsen (Greenfairy) from her book "Quilting Wide Open Spaces"
( Green Fairy Quilts Blog )
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom 80/20
Thread: Fil-tec Glisten Bright Gold, Glide White, bobbin: Glide Bright Yellow

and a couple close ups:

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
