Midnight sun

One day Chris was looking through a new quilt book that had come in the mail that day and spotted this quilt, he asked if I would make it for him. Since he had never asked me to make a quilt for him before, how could I refuse? It took a really long time to pick out fabrics that would blend in the right way, then to cut them into one and a quarter inch strips but I finally got it done and gave it to him on his 24 th birthday. He loved it!

I quilted it in a meandering pattern with stars of metallic threads sprinkled throughout.

I entered this quilt in the Saxonburg quilt show in 2002 and it took 2nd place in the machine pieced, hand quilted category.
