Collaborative Quilt

On Friday a group of us went out for a lovely dinner.  It was to celebrate our friend Kylie’s 40th Birthday.  As a surprise, we presented her with a collaborative quilt that we had made for her.  I helped choose the fabric, and due to the time consuming house move – I made the label.  Probably with more time I would have done some applique on the front, but instead I contented myself with some applique and embroidery on the label itself.

As our group meets regularly to watch a video together, while sipping champagne, and nibbling on strawberries, I decided to include this snack on the label.

The quilt was made using a jelly roll of  Wiscasset fabric by Minick and Simpson with added yardage of the same fabric for the backing and a coordinating red fabric for the border.

If you can manage to see past the furry model, you can see a better rendering of the colours in the quilt, the blue goes well with Kylie’s feature wall and furniture.  Happy Birthday Kylie, from your Friday Night Video Friends!
