Show and Tell…

This lovely Simply Delicious quilt was sent to me by Dana Toulson Leech. She wrote:

Hi Becky,
You asked me to send a picture of the fruit quilt once I finished it. Well, that happened yesterday! Thank you for all of the beautiful designs. They were really fun to do and it taught me a lot about applique. 
I purchased kits for all of the blocks except the tomato. For that one, I used the pattern I ordered from you along with my stash. I also added a wedge to the cantaloupe and embroidered a few seeds in the middle. 
This quilt is destined for my 96-year-old mother — to brighten up her room at the assisted living home.
Cheers and thanks again! Dana   

We all know that Dana’s mother is going to cherish this quit, and everyone who comes into her space is going to enjoy it too. Well done, Dana, and congrats on the finish! Thank you for sharing your quilt, and the story behind it, with us!

  1. That is a beautiful quilt. I’m sure she will cherish it! And then it will come back to you to cherish even more because it was a labor of love!

  2. This is a treasure! I think this might have been one of the first appliqué quilts I saw early in my quilting process when I thought I’d never appliqué….I’m currently finishing up my Aunt Millie’s Garden borders, and feel like I could appliqué all day most days!
    Thanks for sharing!
