Fall 2009 Online Quilt Show

This is my entry in Amy's Fall 2009 Online Quilt Show. This is the first top I ever made. I saw the pattern in a magazine and had to make it. It took me several months to gather up the fabrics I wanted to use since I was a new quilter but I wanted a scrappy look.

I started the top sometime around 2001 and it got put away until last year. I pulled it back out and finished it up and had my dear friend tirane do the quilting.

Here's a closeup of the quilting

and a closeup of the border. It's one of the only times I've asked her to do something specific in the border. I wanted a holly vine and as usual she did an outstanding job.

I hope you've enjoyed my quilt and check out what other quilters around the world are doing!
