“Calm” Quilt Has Landed

“Calm” landed in its forever home yesterday. I took these pics of it before mailing it.

The backing is a stylized version of ”daisy” petals—at one time the favorite flower of my DIL, whose birthday present this quilt is. Tamara Enright, with founding help from The Savanna Bee Company, has pioneered The Bee Cause, which now has bee hives meant to provide safety for this species in all 50 states. There is a Facebook page if you care to check it out.

The Innova quilting stitch is awesome—and the pantograph is ”Feather Grande” designed by Bethanne Nemesh—and seen by me on the blog wendysquilting.wordpress.com. Wendy lives in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, and we have become online friends—a friendship I treasure. Wendy is an awesome longarm quilter and quilt maker. I purchased the pantograph from Urban Elementz.

”Calm” provided so many lovely quilting hours. She was so fun to make.

  2. I have to say again that I really love this quilt. Everything about it. Isn’t it kinda neat that log cabin blocks create a pieced border? They are my favorite.

    • I have not “seen” the border in this way until you mentioned it. Thanks so much.
