I did not sew this, her grandmother did, I only quilted it.
What was your inspiration?
Shortly before Christmas, I talked our Hygienist into making her very first quilt. She borrowed a template from me, I gave her some brief instructions and she was off! She came back with the top finished, some batting and backing and said...now what? So I offered to quilt it for her. I have a little set up that I use with my "short arm" and it works just great for small quilts that don't required great detail.
What are you most proud of?
I used a platinum cotton thread and echoed the large floral motif through out the quilt. The thread blended beautifully in all the blocks and stood out on the dark purple which helped the dark purple blend with the rest of the fabrics.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just have fun!
