LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP

I completed a new small wall quilt called "Love and Friendship".  I used a pattern by Cheri Saffiote-Payne.  I love her designs.  I used wool on cotton for the applique.  The quilt blocks are about 4 1/4" square.  Not hard to make but slower to stitch handling the small pieces.  I used several pieces of Jo Morton fabrics and other reproduction fabrics from stash.
It took me a while to decide on a quilting design.  The left border is wider than the right side.  And there are a variety of applique pieces in the border.  I finally decided just to outline the applique and then echo quilt over the whole piece.  I like the result.

I am working on finishing another Christmas design quilt.  Makes me happy to finally get a flimsy to the completed stage.
