I am blown away........

Nancy brought back Aunt Millie's - quilted - IT IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!
The quilter is Karen Power.  I absolutely love her work but she has really outdone herself here - the quilt is phenomenal!

I have included a full size picture as well as some close ups of the quilting but you really have to see this close up and in person to appreciate it.  It is currently hanging on our design board in the classroom and will be there until Monday (here for the Open House) then Nancy will be taking it home to finish putting on the binding, which by the way was cut on the bias and looks fabulous......it will then be hung in the store!  So don't put it off - come and see it......

The Quilt......
A shot of the quilting on the border..... 
One of the blocks quilted....... 
 A block and the border...........................
 The bottom border, flower centers are yo yo's.............................
It took Nancy about a year to complete and now we're offering it as a Block of the Month - with Nancy's expertise of course!  I'm so glad she took her time with it, it shows!  I am just blown away by this quilt!

Happy Quilting!
