Good morning cuties,

Well I finally finished my sister's quilt. Many hours of love went into this one but it was so worth it to see their reaction, she cried and just couldn't get over it. I was so pleased. She had asked for a sun and moon to be incorporated in the quilt and that was not an easy task. She loves (is obsessed) with anything sunset and sunrise so I went with the colors to represent those themes. It is a little offset because I thought I was finished and turns out I had to add another row (darn 15'' matresses) and then I didn't have enough of the brown fabric left to continue my pattern on the bottom. Nevertheless it is more than perfect in her eyes and that's what matters. That's me in the first picture with my thumb's up. I am so relieved it is done.
So thanks for peeking, have a great day,

Love the quilt, it turned out beautiful. Could you let me know where the sun and moon designs are from? I love suns and moons and would love to add them into my sisters quilt of Rhino. Thank you for sharing.
Happy Stitching!!! :~)

thank you
The sun is a design I put together myself. The moon is a design that I will try to find where it came from and let you know.

Beautiful! A Masterpiece! Love! These are all the things I see (and so does your sis I'm sure) when I look at this quilt. If it was all done ITH, it must have taken you a long time, as it looks queen or king sized. Very nice Michelle.

WOW, MAGNIFIQUE, tu as de quoi être fière.

by peafarm 12 Sep 2016

This is quite fabulous. I can see the many hours of 'love' you put in to this. Striking pattern especially for one who loves moon and sun. Was this an ITH block? I've never seen this pattern but lol, I am not a big quilted although I love looking at all the pretty pictures in the books. What a treasure. I know you'll sure be her favorite sister! Masterpiece.
