I thought I would give an update as to what my current quilting projects are. As you may recall, I am making a quilt for each of my children. This helps me to learn new techniques as I am going along. Currently, I am working on a quilt for my daughter, Elizabeth. Unlike the boys, she took an active role in choosing the pattern and the fabric. Isn’t this just a beautiful quilt?

The lattice appearance, as well as the color scheme drew Elizabeth to this choice

I wish you could see the shiny gold in the orange fabric. These photos do not represent the beauty very well. She has great taste!

Here, we see the squares together. I have since added a 2 inch green border and have yet to add the next much wider border. There are surprises in store for the rest of this little beauty, so stay tuned!

I will update as the quilt progresses. I think it will just be so …. Bethy.
