I LOVE this! Beautiful quilting on lovely fabrics and such a creative pattern! You and your daughter should be very proud! Looks like you used a variety of strip pieced cuts in a fantastic design. You have inspired me! :)
nmcclel answered:
It is very rewarding to work on a project with my creative daughter. Many of the pieces were already sewn in strips of two or three and cut at an angle from Trade Winds, so we had to use what we had. The quilt ended being done in vertical rows as opposed to traditional horizontal rows. Glad to have young eyes to see new ways to doing the thing that I love- quilting!
