Pat McCandless sent this version of the Lawn and Garden design. Here’s what Pat wrote:
I used magenta background based on the one you showed some months ago, and combined it with 3 different artists’ bluebird patterns to create a wedding quilt for a young friend. I loved the way it turned out. It is now en route to Ohio, due to be delivered to the bride’s mom today, in time for a shower on Saturday. After I had already completed the quilt top, I learned that the bride’s fiancé calls her his”little bird”, and the decorating theme for their December wedding revolves around birds. Ahhh….kismet!
Thank you, Pat, for sharing your quilt. I love the way you mixed up the different quilt blocks to make this special quilt!
Pat also said that she is truly appreciating the Hand Sewing Adventure right now. She was one among the many, many California household without power due to the PG&E shutoff. Having something to sew by hand underway is especially important at times like this!
I agree with that sentiment!
What a special gift. Very nice.
What a generous giver and what a lucky recipient!
Magenta was definitely an interesting and bold choice for the background, but it really is lovely and being a big bird fan, the corner appliques really set it off.
That is a beautiful quilt and one very thoughtful gift. Lucky bride and groom!
