sister quilt

this is a quilt that i started when i heard my younger sister who is a member of the canadian military would be posted to a naval ship...i decided i would make her a quilt she could take with her for her "rack"



sorry for the bad photo...this quilt is a king size quilt...hard to get a good photo... i designed each block to be different and enjoyed making it so much...i got carried away and it just got so large...what was i thinking... it is way too large for a "rack" on a ship...




you can see more of the borders here... some reflection from the crystals in the block on the right...



here you can see more of the detail...altho the colour is a little blue and not true to the quilt...i loved this quilt and entered in the local fair where it took home both prize for best in class and best in show...it just will never go to sea

what an incredible quilt! Congratulations on the ribbons - well deserved! (And yes, a tad big to go to sea)
