Disclaimer: Bad quilty pictures ahead, Winter in progress!
Actually got this together last week, but Friday was too hectic to post. So here she is in all her glory, and I call her "Henna Love". I still just love these fabrics. The solid is Kona ash. The tutorial I used says to cut off and straighten the edges, but I am considering leaving it the way it is. Seems a shame to lose even a smidgen of that Henna Garden print! Of course leaving it this way it is means binding will be less than enjoyable...advice would be welcome! I wish that the ironing fairy had shown up today, have any of you seen her?
Just took this picture a few minutes ago. (In my dark, poorly lit living room, sorry!) This quilt has always been called in my head, "Orange Blossom Perfume". Whenever my grandma and grandpa went to Florida they would bring me some Orange Blossom Perfume. This quilt makes me almost smell it. Putting it together has made memories return, and a few tears flow...with joy.
Update: I have batting for Orange Blossom, and the batting for Henna Love is on order. Finishing up backs!! Be sure to visit the other Fabric Tuesday links by clicking on the Fabric Tuesday button on my right side bar!!
