Quilt for Karena





I just finished this quilt for my future daughter-in-law, Karena.  She and my son, Tim will be married June 4th.  I am so excited.  She is an artist and an art teacher.  As soon as I saw this fabric I knew I wanted to make a quilt for her.  It is supposed to resemble paint strokes.  The fabric is called Vincent VanGogh.  It was designed by the Vincent VanGogh Museum.  The quilt pattern I used was a freebie called "Gateway to Paradise."  I love the stained glass look of it.  It was a relatively quick quilt to put together thank goodness, especially since I am a beginner.  Although, there was a major learning curve in piecing the black strips.  My brain had a really tough time figuring those out!  Longarm quilting by Into the Night Quilting (Marsha Pennington.)  Next quilt I will be doing the quilting.

 I didn't use all the colors in the jelly roll.  I wanted to stick to the brighter ones so it would look more like stained glass.




















Seems Oliver has made himself right at home.  Good thing she isn't allergic to cats!



Now on to finish the first quilt I started.  No more getting sidetracked!
