She is finished!
Star Blossoms by Thimble Blossoms has the outside border on now!
I am pretty happy about this quilt!
I am actually calling it the Saffron Safari.
My son's in-laws went on a very magical trip to India this year and
that was the name of their group. It was no ordinary tour I assure
you... so the amazing stories they had shared
of the trip kept running through my head as I
worked on this quilt.
Similarly it has been a fun journey in itself
working on this quilt
with Thelma at Cupcake n Daisies.
It started out with a barter... which led to a project...
and even though we say we worked on this "together",
it has been more or less a game of tag.
She went out of town... I started prepping and cutting my
fabrics... then I went out of town... and she was back in her sewing room...
I had a setback...
this went on and on like that and
amazingly, we are able to share our finished quilts with you at
the same time! Thelma is posting about her sweet Star Blossoms
quilt today too!
I was inspired by the elephants that I heard about
and that is how I decided to turn my
"mistake" (reversed geese) into the border to
represent the decorated elephants...
marching around the quilt.
I found this photo just now that resembles the picture I had in my head.
