I found this pattern a few months ago and immediately began searching for the fabrics i wanted to use. Once they all arrived I started piecing, piecing, piecing. I loved the top when it was completed but it took me a very long time to come up with a quilting plan. I had a week off from working on customers’ quilts just before the holidays and I took a deep breath and put it on the frame. Oh, did I have fun. It took me several days to work out the placement and stitching but I am pretty happy with the result.
