Everly’s Baby Quilt

EverlyFront

Rosalie made this beautiful quilt for her granddaughter.  It is extra special because she used fabrics from Everly’s great-grandmother for the owl appliqué.

Rosalie gave me the quilt top and said I could do whatever I wanted with it. I started by adding trapunto to the owl, branch and leaves. Then I got out my favourite rulers and went crazy.

Instead of quilting the sashing and the border separately, I decided link them together with my quilting.

The plain backing really allows the free motion quilting to show.

Thank you Rosalie for allowing me to quilt this family heirloom.
