This is a queen sized quilt in a diamond pattern, with a small star appliqued to the center. My mom wanted a quilt in these colors, and we took the pattern from a book about Amish quilts. The fabric is a polyester blend, and the batting is cotton. I did the piecing, and drew up the quilting designs.
I did the quilting of the wreath in the center, but I did not do the rest of it; we found a church group in the Chicago area who did the quilting (for a very reasonable price) following the designs I had drawn out. I have decided that quilting is not my forte, specially when I am working by myself.
The center portion has feathered wreaths, the pink bands have a grapevine motif (including the grapes) and the blue triangles have a plant design. It turned out very pretty, but it is quite heavy, which is why it is hanging on the wall and is not on the bed.
We are back home from Michigan, but we have another week of vacation. Any suggestions of things to do?
