Prairie Flower is a flimsy!
I must have made it for this bed since it fits perfectly. Now I wonder what guests are going to be sleeping under her?
I put a flange on most of my quilts. This one is no exception. It's all about the details. Just this little 1/8" of color adds so much to the look of the quilt.
Doesn't the border look like a soft chocolate swirl ice cream cone?
Of course Mazey wanted to get into the picture. This quilt was too large for the design wall, so it spent a fair bit on time on the floor so I could measure, measure, and measure again while preparing the borders. I found myself stitching her dog hair into the seams more than once. I know it was her hair since it is much longer than mine!
Many have asked if this is going to be a pattern, and the answer is yes. I have some of it written already, but that will be my main task in March. I also have to calculate the fabric requirements which isn't trivial.
I'll work on the backing today as long as the power stays on. It's coming down in buckets right now and the winds are starting to kick up. It is pretty amazing to see just how far the pine trees can bend in the wind without snappy like a toothpick. It is also a little scary. Yet ANOTHER major rain event is hitting California today. Thousands are on standby evacuation orders as many rivers are spilling over their banks.
Tomorrow, I'm off to Sonora to teach. You know the phrase, "Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise". Keep warm and safe today.
