I couldn't resist this beautiful quilt top pieced by Joanne, my daughter & owner of Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shoppe. When she said she was going to sell it, I just couldn't see it getting away so I bought it before any one else could. She has given me so many tops, It was time I compensated her up front for beautiful work in both selecting fabrics and piecing them.
I have friends who LOVE butterflies and perhaps one of them will love this as much as I do. My daughter loves it too, as do I, so only time will tell where it ends up. The pattern, "Just can't cut it", is perfect when a main fabric needs showing off. I have used it myself a couple of times.
April 23: Marie Trivette, a dear friend and mother of Tony, is considering this quilt.
May 18: Marie has decided to purchase this quilt with modifications. She took the top home to measure what size border she wants me to add to make it fit her queen bed.
June 03: Marie wants me to use the backing I already have to add a 12" border Next time I go down to the shop (for my grandson's graduation) I will pick out a new backing.
June 12: Have the backing but not quite enough
June 19: Have the last 1/2 yard of backing
June 25: Pieced the backing. Loaded & basted.
June 26: Quilted, squared and ready to bind.
July 10: Finished.
