Del Hi Complete! Festival of Quilts!


I really enjoyed working on this quilt.  I used the Del Hi pattern from Free Spirit fabric along with the fabrics by Valori Wells.  I have always really loved her collections.  This quilt was not for me, and I hope so much that it's new owner loves it.   I quilted a mum type pattern in all the strips and then butterflies in the cross section.  The finished size is about 68 x 89 inches.  The original pattern was for an 80 x 80 throw and I modified it to fit a twin sized bed.  I love being able to change things about ready made patterns to fit what I need.  I have to say again, I love how it turned out.

Turned out great! I wish I could see your quilting pattern better, but from what I can see it's really neat.

Your quilting is always really interesting -- a departure from my normal stippling or scrolling. I love how this turned out. Lucky Sanae!
