Block of the Month Beauty

Here is an incredible quilt pieced and appliqued by Abby W. from New York state.   She said it took a year and a half to complete the top.  I’m not surprised. She did a wonderful job!  The pattern was a block of the month offered a couple of years ago on The Quilt Show  (with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims) on the Internet.  It was designed by Sue Garman.

I did my best to compliment the top with combination of straight line quilting , stitch in the ditch, and freehand flowers, leaves and feathers.  It took a while, but the results were worth it.  The back side (last pic) looks like a whole cloth whitework quilt!Image
