AMAZING!!!

A Light In The Garden
The Longwood Garden quilt is finished and it is a beauty!!! It was made in 3 panels. The first represents light in the garden in the morning, the second panel, light in the conservatory and the third panel, light in the moonlit garden.

I took a bunch of close ups so you can see the extraordinary quilting by Lisa Calle. It is all very random but enhances the design so well.


There was a lot of research done to find flowers that bloomed in the late hours of the day.....


This originally had a hanging basket with a plant in it at the top. They switched it out for the birds which I think was perfect.

Just look at the quilting!


I really like the rays of the sun.


The swirly hearts around the butterflies suggest flying to me.
Just beautiful...


Don't you like the cross hatch quilting that just stops randomly?


A very detailed bird.
I was very happy to be a part of this group. If you ever get to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square Pennsylvania be sure to look for this in the lobby. I think this is the best one yet!
