This lovely quilt was made for a friend by Lynn H. of Raleigh. It is based on the antique quilt top Lynn and I saw at the Vintage Quilt Study Group meeting in February, 2009. The top is owned by Pat Y. of Raleigh and was purchased in rural central Indiana. Pat does not know who made the original top. This quilt is based on my new pattern, Kissing Nine Patch On Point.
You can see the pattern on my website.
Lynn used Dimples tone-on-tone colors from the focus fabric and cut squares from many different colors to come up with this block setting. She then used the quicker method strip piecing to assemble each color wave of blocks. When we were on our beach retreat she made the 3 pillow shams.
Additional photos show the piecing of the blocks as well as the lovely quilting by Angela Clark of Threadwaggle Longarm Quilting. (www.threadwaggle.com)
