A New Old Top!

I opened my mailbox this week to the most delightful surprise!

My dear friend, Zenia, was given this quilt top along with some others. She sent me pics of it asking for quilting ideas and I immediately fell in love and began plotting to make my own.

Before I started cutting, she gifted this to me. How sweet is that? She is the kindest, most caring friend.

I love this little patch.

It’s a tough one to photograph, the colors seem to glow! This last photo is the truest in terms of color.

This top has shot to the top of my To Be Hand Quilted list! I feel so lucky!

Have a great day!

    Gorgeous! But it would be a good idea to check for colorfastness! And maybe set the dye with Retayne!

  4. Remarkable! Looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

  5. I can totally see Zenia doing that; she is such a sweetie! What a pretty quilt!

    Oh gosh! Are you going to use a big frame or large hoop to quilt it? Such fun!
