I renamed it Petunias because the shape and some of the colors (pink and yellow) reminded me of Petunias I have on my deck.
Most of the fabrics are left over from a Pickle Dish Wedding Quilt I made for my granddaughter's hope chest.
Blocks are 18 inches.
It is all hand quilted in pink thread. In the wedges I alternated lines out and lines across. Oh, it gives such a lovely texture (along with a callous on the middle finger of my left hand).
In the secondary star pattern I just stitched around each section and in alternate sections stitched around twice.
It's such a busy quilt I wondered if any of the hand quilting would really show. I'm glad I hand quilted and pleased with the results.
This might be a Christmas gift for one of the granddaughters next year. It's the perfect size for a twin bed. I can't give it this year because I don't have one finished for the other granddaughter.
I had family in town for a nephew's wedding - some from CA and some from FL and some from several states in between. I took some time off of work and sat around and hand quilted during the times everyone was here visiting and not playing games. I love to play games almost as much as I love to hand quilt.
And here's the wild back. I pieced together two sections of sale fabric matching up the chevrons so it looks like a wide backing.
