Ask, and ye shall receive. Seems I've heard that somewhere before??
Eagle Lake Village in Susanville. If you've never seen an assisted living facility, let me tell you, they are not what you'd expect. They are like having a room at the Ritz! Its amazing!!
But, back to the quilt. I made this one in a hurry (I think its called a split nine-patch?) with some charm squares I'd purchased to match the colors of my sister's house. Unfortunately, I hadn't thought to purchase sashing at the same time. That meant a trip to our local hardware store (yes, I said "hardware store") to look for some. Dennis picked this out from their limited supply...what do you think?
I used Kristina's Quiltazoid (mine is on its way) to quilt the blocks and then just did feathers and some weird loopy thing in the sashing (good thing my sis isn't a quilter *chuckle*). Lesson learned: When using the QZ, fill in some of the empty places to balance quilt density. Unfortunately, since I was on the clock, trying to get this done before I flew out, I didn't go back and do that.
A couple pictures of the back. I love it when the quilting shows! (okay, so you may have to click on the photo to make it larger so you can see it, but it does show...really!)
I think she'll be happy anyway.
Oh, and here's a little test for any of you that are puzzle solvers: There's something wrong with a photo in this post--can you see it??
