Nancy's Fairy Quilt

This Fairy Quilt was so fun to work on.  Nancy started working on it with her niece, who during the process became ill and passed away.  Nancy finished it, and will be taking it to her niece's memorial service.  This was also Nancy's first time doing applique, and she definitely mastered it.

 Border treatment.  I did minimal stitching in the printed Fairy border.  The fairies were too pretty to do much stitching over.

For the blocks, I kept the quilting fairly simple there too.  The piecing and colors made their own statement.

 The large center applique looked amazing with McTavish quilting. 

And a shot of the finished quilt.

I enjoyed working on this quilt because the fabrics were so unique, and the piecing was great.  I was honored to play a part in this special quilt.  Thank you Nancy.

Thanks to all of you for joining me, I appreciate your company.
