    Quilt for Cousin

    Just finished a quilt requested by a cousin. She wanted a yellow brick road look and the the cherry border fabric. She left the other fabric choices up to me - that was a challange, as I wasn't in love with the cherries! I already had Eleanor Burns' Fabric Frenzy pattern for the quilt front. In an effort to use up as many of the fabrics as possible I did a giant chevron back - then made a two-sided carry tote to store the quilt in. I have only a 2x4 inch piece left of the cherries and odd chunks of the others. I named the quilt "Life is a Bowl Full" and quilted it on my DSM. The cherry fabric did finally grow on me.

    She is going to love it! I do. You did a fantastic job on that, and I love the carrying bag too. I would like very much to see a picture of her when she gets it.

    The fact that your back is just as cute as the front warrants saying this quilt is reversible for sure. What a great job.

    You knocked it out of the park! The YBR is sort of calm and then you've got the WOW of the Chevron on the back and then that wonderful tote! You are one fantastic cousin!
