Links...
that's the name of this quilt. Quilts link us together. Figured Darcie would like that. She has a thing for word play. My friend Tanya pieced this quilt after I picked out her colors. She could have done it, but it was something she assigned to me and I had a blast. Playing with colors is one of my very favorite things. Surprised there's no orange in it, aren't you? Hey, I like other colors, too! I quilted it using a variegated pastel thread and Darcie's freehand feathers...er, rather, Nines' interpretation of Darcie's freehand feathers. No two people meander alike and no two people feather alike. But I tried. We also put Dream Green batting in it- kept 16 water bottles from the landfill! Quilts up very nice. Tanya spent over 50 hours on this little baby and I think she did a great job- especially after being up close and personal with it for the past couple days. But now I am tired and think I need to crochet for a bit. Have a great weekend everyone!
