Happy Birthday, Jackie.
My quilt buddy turned 75 on Friday. I made this quilt for her and gave it to her this afternoon. The picture is a bit blurry. And she certainly doesn't look 75 either!
This quilt pattern is called Cranberry Kisses -- it was an exclusive to Kansas Troubles Quilters Newsletter subscribers for the summer issue. I used mostly KTQ fabrics (I knew I couldn't go wrong with them since Jackie loves them as much as I do). I forgot to get a picture of the backing, but I used a stack of tan fqs I had in the stash, cut them either 17½ or 17" square and sewed them together randomly. It worked pretty well for a backing, and most of them were KTQ fabrics also. It was stitched in the ditch (which I did freehand instead of using the horizontal and vertical holds, and also on the diagonal in the squares. The border has a vine with leaves and berries quilted into it.
