Patrina had wanted this quilt for a while but she didn't want to ask me because she thought I would be all FRIENDSHIP OVER. But she underestimated my level of crazy. Not only did I say yes, I also suggested we do 25 blocks instead of the 20 blocks Denyse had written for the king size pattern because 25 seemed like
As you can see, I also made Patrina a pillow. Masochist. That's what I am. I'd sent the quilt off for quilting, and I had a few scraps left over, so I thought why the hell not. I hand quilted it too, just echoing the rings.
Patrina decided she wanted the baptist fan pattern, which I always love. I think it's such a lovely complement to the rings. Just look at all those curves and gorgeous pops of colour. Sigh :)
The binding is Bella Porcelain, same as the background, because we didn't want it to stand out... the rings needed to do all the talking on the front.
Damn dog is so freaking cute, I want to bite her.
Patrina, I'm beyond ecstatic that we collaborated on this quilt. Your excitement and utter thrill over this quilt is why I do what I do. And I'm just grateful I get to call you my friend :)
Now the both of us have to go punch things because that's just too bloody mushy. Ahem.
All photographs were taken by Patrina. Because she's an amazing photographer and this quilt deserved to have beautiful photos taken of it.
Quilting was done by Laura McCarrick.
