Blue Collection


A few years ago, I finally finished this needle-turned, complicated challenge, and gave it to my sister. I'd not seen what she did with it until last weekend. Her dining room feature wall is dark blue, and this quilt really pops on that background. It is called, "Blue Collection" and was designed by Maggie Walker. I bought the block of the month kit online, but cannot remember where (too long ago!) I switched some of the fabrics and added more leaves to the middle tree. It was quilted on my Baby Lock, rather heavily. I'd forgotten how much I liked it until I saw it again on her wall.

I can't even imagine making that quilt. What a beauty! And it looks great on the dark wall.

I emailed Kathy my "tips" -- nothing too profound. Just follow the directions to the letter! They are very good, but assembly is complicated, particularly the tree in the middle with its branches overlapping the other blocks. Also make each block a tad too big, just in case!
