Christmas Present Recap #1

This was a graduation/Christmas present for my baby sister. I saw the Double Dresden quilt made by Melissa and knew I would do a take on that.. This was my last quilt in Hawaii and it was a mad scramble to the finish line before I flew home for the holidays!

She requested rainbow colors in dresdens

Kate Spain flannel backing

Modeling with her quilt

hours upon hours of quilting with variegated thread

All in all, success. Hopefully she'll take in to Missouri in March for farrier school! :)

Quilt Stats:
pattern: Happy Quilting's Double Dresden quilt
size: approximately 54" x72"
