My friend Irene, who I affectionately call "prairie girl", (guess where she comes from) went up with me one day to The Hobby Horse. We saw this fabulous pattern and you know -- we just had to have it!
Let me state before I go any further that Irene is the embroiderer. She does the most beautiful work.....possibly that glass of wine she says she drinks while doing it. I don't drink wine so that is my excuse!
This is the same block.........Irene's looks different from mine. I had trouble finding mine on my quilt to take the photo.
Now take another look at these two blocks. Another difference is there. Can you spot it? Irene used four different fabrics to frame her basket block, I used two. I like it either way.
Look at the quilting on each one. The same LA did both quilts. Did them differently though didn't she? Mine is cross hatched where the basket is, Irene's has stippling. Either way both look great.
This is the back of both quilts. You know you could almost hang this side on the wall. They are both beautiful.
Thanks Irene for the photos. Muchly appreciated. Wait til you see her next quilts. Yummy!
