We've been having some gorgeous summer weather this week, despite the earthquake some areas of the east coast experienced yesterday. I felt nothing, but some people in our region have reported swaying light fixtures and shifting furniture. On top of this, Hurricane Irene is on her way, and we should be getting some rain and winds beginning Sunday. Since my husband will be returning from Japan Saturday night, I'm hoping that the bad weather will hold off until he gets home!
On Monday, I had lunch with some friends and then we went to my friend Andrea's studio to see this beautiful quilt made by the very talented Nedra. It's hard to believe that the motifs on this pieced quilt are entirely hand appliqued! There are Sunbonnet Sue figures tucked in here and there, and the name of the quilt is "Sueville Album Quilt".
Nedra was asking our opinion as to what she would use for the outer border....
There was a general consensus that the inner border should be repeated. Nedra has already attached the border, and this is the result :
I can only say that, in person, this quilt is a real joy to behold!! The colors dance, the workmanship is beautiful and now it just needs to be quilted. I predict that it will be an absolute beauty when it is done!
Thanks for sharing your creation, Nedra!
I hope that everyone who reads this is enjoying a terrific week!
