Follow Your Dreams
For former co-worker Cherish V.
She and her family are moving to another area of the state to begin a new adventure.
Cherish's favorite color is green.
Two by Two blocks
Original design, mostly from stash.
Boston Common quilt top
10+ years old
Created using Anita Hallock's Fast Patch technique
Two-color purple border added
There wasn't enough of either purple fabric to make the border as wide as I wanted.
Wrapped colors around the corners instead of using one color on the sides and the other on the top/bottom.
Boston Common quilt top is one of several tops (mostly received previously from Vacaville Binky Patrol) that will be sent to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where they will be finished with batting/batting/long-arm quilting at no charge. Finished quilts to be distributed to victims of the recent flooding in the Calgary area.
