The Quilt

here's my quilt top that has taken me 2 years to complete! i bought the fabric when i was pregnant with molly kate. the pattern is from sweet dreams heirloom quilts for babies by gordon and young.
the instructions suggest hand piecing, and being me, that's what i did. i found that i got better control of curves and points by hand.

my friend linda
was kind enough to send me some scrumptious wool batt. it is so soft; i can feel the lanolin in it. do i need to add that it's a joy to quilt through? :-)

i took this quilt on vacation so i could hand quilt it--all those hours in the car! got a lot of it done, but still haven't finished.

i really love this quilt. when it is all quilted and bound, i think i'll (almost) have to have a little ceremony to release it so that mk can actually use it.

what a lovely quilt! looks very similar to a drunkards path block (a pattern i've always wanted to try). glad the batt was as dreamy as you hoped! :)
