Description

This English Garden of Lavender and Greens (Eleanor Burns's Lover's Knot pattern) is the first quilt top I ever pieced.... about 20 years ago! I put it away, and went on to creating other pieced quilts, thinking I would get back to it - someday. Well, "someday" arrived a couple of months ago when I started going through my stash of things to complete and re-discovered the quilt top made to use as a tablecloth.

A friend of mine's adult daughter wants to attend Chaplain school, but she doesn't have the tuition needed. A few of us brainstormed how to raise the funds for her. We came up with hosting an online silent auction with various handmade items from mutual friends who craft and knit and sew!

I completed the quilt by simply attaching the backing & batting, turning right sides out, then tied. I'm unable to physically hand quilt anymore, and this was too big (approximately 50" square) for me to even attempt machine quilting on my home sewing machine. It has been donated to the worthy cause!

So pretty! I love pretty much anything Eleanor Burns designs and this is such a lovely version of the Lover's Knot. It is so kind of you to donate it.

I love the soft colors and even though this was started 20 years ago the colors still work! (Unlike the blue and peach phase of the 80's!). I'm now going to check out this pattern...looks like it would be jelly roll friendly?

Terryt1955 Thank you! I don't think lavender and greens will ever go out of style! Would love to hear/see results using a jelly roll!

I'll join the chorus of those who like the colors. :-) I hope it does well in the silent auction.
