    Rites of Spring is finished!

    Several people asked me to post this quilt when it was finished. I finished sewing on the hanging sleeve yesterday so here are some pictures as requested! I wanted to show some close ups of the embellishments and maybe you can some of the wonderful quilting done by my LAer Cynthia Shaw. Thank you for looking.

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

    When I saw this quilt in the Keepsake Quilting catalog, I fell in love with it. You did a super job and so did your LAer.

    Absolutely stunning. Such pretty fabrics and you have certainly "captured" a gardeners dream.

    I am in love with this quilt. Good thing I don't know where you live or I might try to sneak it out of your house! LOL

    This is absolutely wonderful. I love this type of quilt and this is the best I've seen in a long time. Did you make
    up the patterns for each block? I'd really like to know where you got the patterns if you can email me.

    it is so beautiful. was it a kit, or did you pick your own fabrics. love it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    STUNNING. Perfect job of mastering the pattern and choices of fabric. I like that the LA quilter used a light hand as not to detract from the perfection of YOUR work.
