I have another gorgeous quilt to share!! I told you, I have several quilts to catch you up on!! My very good friend, Stephanie posted it yesterday, so now I can post it too. First, Stephanie and I met when I first started blogging via the Internet. Then, we realized we lived pretty close to one another. She was the first blogging friend I met in person! It was very cool. You can read about it here. We have been friends ever since!!
Stephanie's quilt is Super Mario, a pattern by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. Two of her patterns in a row too. :-)
I love everything about this quilt!!! It just screams "cuddle with me." The pattern is beautiful and the fabrics are so warm and inviting. I LOVE the 9-Patches in the border!! Stephanie did an amazing job!!!
Stephanie requested allover quilting. I wanted the quilting to enhance the beauty of the piecing and quilt. The flowy, swirly paisley was the go-to on this one!
Threads are a tan So Fine. Quilting is all freehand. The backing is beautiful as well.
The batting is Hobbs Wool, which I suggested to Stephanie. It is lightweight and shows off the quilting. Perfect to cuddle under. This was Stephanie's first experience with wool batting. Stephanie gives a review of the wool batting too. There is a wonderful story to this quilt, the label, and name. The name of the quilt is Olive Juice. That is the best name EVER for a quilt. Just makes you smile to say it!! You have to go to Stephanie's blog Peas In A Pod and read all about it here. Stephanie has wonderful photos of the quilt bound, washed and dried. I love how it looks!!!! It is fun to see green grass and the sun shinning in the photos. I looked at the dates on my pics and I quilted this back in July!!! Wow, time flies!!! Make sure you stop by Stephanie's blog and read about Olive Juice!!! It is just a "feel good" post. Made my day! :-)
