Have you ever read a good book but started reading more slowly or even put it away early because you didn’t want it to end. This Garden Gate quilt is a lot like that! But I am almost at the end of the book with this quilt. Here are a couple of pictures from today. Hopefully, this weekend you will see a quilt!!
My beautiful customer gave me permission to share this photo of her bedroom. She is legally blind and she can see the bold, vibrant colors used in decorating her bedroom by her sister. I was commissioned to create the duvet cover and bed skirt for this queen size bed. The work included making 14.5 yards of piping which is used around the color block and completely around the duvet cover. The color block will eventually be decorated with applique art by the customer. I used velcro as the closure at the bottom of the cover. It does not interfere with the decorative effect of the piping.Time to make these two items was about 14 hours. (The duvet was not yet in the cover at the time of this picture.)
Here is my contribution for the day – hoping to model it later:) I got this idea from Jay McCarroll and his Kitchen Sink Patchwork Skirt model
