Faith Hope Love.................................
A McKenna Ryan design made by Elaine and given to me to custom quilt, this one was a hard one to give back as it looked so good on my guest bed.
Elaine did a fine zigzag stitch for the edges of the applique, I then ditch stitched around all the applique and in the blocks, sashing and border ditches then went on to enjoy some free hand feathers, tendrils and leaves to fill in some of the more open areas of the blocks.
I then went on using Glide thread in the colour 'Mocha' for a free flowing feathered border.
It was a real pleasure to quilt this lovely quilt for Elaine and even more of a pleasure to see how delighted she was to see it nearly finished!
