Pattern from Kaffe Fassett's book Quilt Romance
This is a wedding quilt for my granddaughter's hope chest. (She's only 10 years old now so it will be a few years before she sees it)
It is hand quilted. I used stencils to mark some of the quilting and in other sections.
I'm still working to perfect my stitches. Right now I'm trying for consistent size. Later I will try for smaller and smaller stitches. I love hand quilting. It is so relaxing and gives a quilt a lovely texture. And somehow I think it puts me in touch with my ancestors.
As with most of my quilts...this was a learning experience...curves, paper piecing, hand quilting...I'm hoping I'm still alive when my granddaughter gets married but if not I will be there in the spirit of this quilt.
