You've seen my pennies...
And you've seen my flowers...
You've seen my stitching progress...
Now it's time to share the whole quilt...here it is...Pennies In My Garden! It's been in the Des Moines Show (2nd place ribbon), it's been to South Dakota and it will go to Lee's Summit, MO with me on Thursday so that others can see it in person! I will be glad to hang it on my wall very soon for the winter months!
I've been so busy, it's taken a while to finish the pattern! It's ready now thank goodness! The finished size is 72" square, just the right size for a large wall hanging or a bed topper. This quilt can be positioned on the bed straight with the mattress or on the diagonal for a different look! I'll be offering partial kits if you are interested. They will include a background similar to this one. Unfortunately this exact background is no longer available, but the background I've chosen is pretty close, and just as beautiful! The kits will also have a variety of wools for the pennies totaling about half the amount needed for the pennies. The pattern will be sold separately. This will give you a good start on a scrappy collection of wools for this quilt. You can add more wool or cotton in whatever proportion you prefer to finish off the quilt! Shop HERE at TraditionalPrimitives.com today to pre order your kit! I'm taking orders and you will get your kit in a few weeks time. The wools may vary slightly as I order more, but they will all blend well. Hand dyed wool is always a bit different with each order.
This picture below shows the original quilt on the left and the wools and brown cotton background I've chosen for the kits. The wools in the picture are slightly brighter than they are in person. The kit totals 3 & 7/8 yd of brown background and 5/8 yd of wools.
Head on over to my store and reserve your kit today!
If any of you will be going to the Lee's Summit Quilt Show this coming Friday and Saturday, Nov 1 & 2, I will be there selling my goodies! Please come see me!
Happy Halloween Everyone! Have fun with the ghosts and goblins!!
