It is Done - Opportunity Quilt 2009

I finished it tonight and called Regina, my partner, over to see it. We are so happy with it. The precision of a computer and the flow of freehand.
I hope you like it. And I hope we make a ton of money on it.

Here's more of the story.


Regina used her Statler to SID the applique and then ghost the sunflowers in other parts of the quilt. She also quilted bees buzzing, caterpillars crawling, a mouse, butterflies and birds flitting around.

Take a look. I did the background quilting to make the applique, especially the trapunto sunflowers pop. Regina was against quilting in the applique. I wanted to put veins in the leaves but I went with her. You can see which leaves are the applique ones (vice the ghotsted leaves) on the back of the qulit.

Utterly beautiful!

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
