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! 🙂

    Haha! You are so sweet to say so many nice things and to link back to me. I am happy I named it Olive Juice. It makes me smile, too! 🙂 Yeah, took me how many months to get it bound??? All because I couldn't find the stupid binding fabric. I figured I'd find it as soon as I bought something new. But not yet! I LOVE the quilting you did for me, and thanks for suggesting the wool bat. I adore it!
