I did this quilt for Kathy Lyon in December of 2012. While it was cold and snowy outside this was a beautiful, tropical quilt to work on in the warmth of my studio. It was Kathy’s first appliqué and a joy to work on. The center was all free hand and borders were patterns that were placed using the Statler Stitcher. Kathy just received the call that the quilt won Best of Show at the Elkhart County Fair. We are thrilled!
