Kim's quilt

I made this quilt for my sister Kim a couple of years ago. She likes blue and yellow. So, she got it! The pattern is one of those strip quilt patterns...I think it was called "Cross Roads" came in a kit. I bought the kit at "Brenda's Quilt Stop" in Collins, MO. while on a vacation. Love Brenda's quilt shop..if you are ever in that must stop in that quilt shop if you are a quilter.

I stitched in the ditch around the squares. That wasn't enough quilting..needed something in those blue tried my hand at free-motion quilting on my regular old Kenmore machine..I did flowers..tried to make them like a Dogwood for Kim. Kim has lived in Hawaii for over 30 years...she is from Atlanta, GA and Dogwood is our state flower. The fabrics are kinda little of Georgia and a little of Hawaii were my thoughts while making this.

Aloha Jo from some of the quilting groups I am in, helped me in choosing the batting for this quilt. Does not get as cold in Hawaii as it does in Georgia. Thank you Jo!! Aloha!!
