Happy graduation, Daughter!!! You did it! 4 years of very hard work! From those days of running around with your Fisher-Price stethoscope around your neck to today, a registered nurse! It just gives me goose bumps.
Here is her gift. A gift of sunflowers all ready to go. A Kitchen Window quilt from Elizabeth Hartman's book, A Practical Guide to Modern Patchwork. The quilt is finished with all over stippling in a yellow top thread and cream bobbin thread. I had to play with the tension a bit because of the 2 different threads but it worked out perfectly. I wondered about how to quilt it and then realized that just as Elizabeth did in her sample quilt, that the stippling was the way to go. The stippling is not dense but rather loose. I decided on the yellow top thread in consultation with Husband. I like it. The yellow disappears in to the solid yellow but pops here and there. Again it was a good solution to the colour contrast in the quilt. The quilt is backed with a lovely sheet in cream and green stripes and pieced with some sunflower yardage along with some Kona cotton. This quilt makes me happy. I have taken many pictures of this quilt so please bear with me. I just couldn't seem to get enough of throwing it around the yard!
