Betty made this cute baby quilt for a new great-grandbaby with a little help from our Sedgwick sewing group. Virginia gave her the block pattern and suggested the setting, I donated some fabric, and the whole group gave suggestions. Because this quilt will be used and washed we decided I would do crosshatching right over the applique to protect against wear and tear.
Since this is a little boy's quilt I didn't want to put any girly old feathers in the setting triangles. Instead I used frogs and fish, inspired by the border fabric.
I'm still plowing away on Gail's show quilt but ran into a snag when I ran out of the metallic thread I am using in the border. It's brown metallic from Wonderfil Thread in Canada and they were wonderfillly helpful when I frantically called to order more.
Ann and I had entered this quilt in several shows without any luck. I decided to try one more time and we entered it in the AQS show in Chattanooga. This time it brought home a blue ribbon for Ann to hang in her sewing room.
