Daughter's quilt top...

My older daughter drove over today to sew....she designed, chose her fabric, and started this quilt top a few months ago...then there came the move to St. Louis.  She has not got her sewing area set up there so she came here to sew this afternoon.


This  is what it looked like when she came.  At least 2/3's done.  We worked all afternoon...she cut and I sewed.  And she pressed the seams.


This is what it looked like when she left.  It is approx 93 inches square...she is making it for one of her friends.



Just one more photo:

I love the fabric and it looks great! You two did a great job. This is great weather for sewing for sure. How much snow do you have? It's been snowing here most of the day, but we are still only talking about inches. Just enough to make bird feeding difficult and messy.

That's exquisite. I love the deep blue, and the scientific-print contrast. It looks really contemporary and traditional all at the same time. Love it!
