Harvest Quilt

I realized that I never showed you one of my secret projects. It was a gift I made for my friend Kelley (Kanknchester).
She has been sending me packages with fabrics and books to help me out since I started quilting again. I decided to surprise her with a wall hanging, using designs from her fall harvest book. It is so hard to show prim with digital, but this is how it came out. I did the quilting by machine and made a vine and leaves coming into the blocks, not sure if you can see them. I used light thread thinking that the tea staining would darken it, but guess not;) I need a lot more practice with machine quilting, it tends to take off on me.

I loved making this using Kelley's designs, they are so prim and fun, it was a pleasure to quilt.

I think making something that someone loves, is what I enjoy most about creating. If it wasn't for Kelley, I wouldn't have gotten back into quilting again.
