Something to Share

Yesterday at the end of school just as I was getting ready to leave Robyn, the teacher across the hall, came in with a mission. She had this beautiful quilt to show me.

Robyn started this quilt a few years ago (not quite sure how many, time has become a relative term lately). It is a traditional Grandmother's Flower Garden, completely hand pieced, and hand quilted.

Isn't is beautiful! Robyn is one of the reasons I love to quilt, and especially applique. She does exquisite appliqué work and at the time I had no desire to even attemp it. She kept encouraging me to just try, and once I saw the pattern for Vintage Valentine I decided to give it a try. After one block I was hooked! This was a great way to start my weekend.
