|Can you believe the color in these corner Pansy's? Each corner has this motif. The quilt is large for its day, it fits a Queen sized mattress with about a 12 inch drop.|
|The center motif. Notice the meticulous hand quilting. 10 stitches to the inch.|
|Note the outline stitching around each motif, in real life it gives each bouquet a dimensional quality. The blue bias medallion is meticulously applied, not a dimple anywhere.|
I plan to admire this quilt for a while then roll it up and put it away. I will bring it out again in the Spring to adorn a bed. Just looking at it makes me smile. What a great Christmas Present. I am (almost) speechless. Happy New Year!
