May Day! May Day!
|Dogwood Blossoms Mini Quilt|
I was actually recalling when I was in elementary school (in the 1950s - yikes!), we had May Day celebrations. We had banners around the May pole, wore little costumes and hats. Wow - a trip down memory lane!
I was inspired to make this quilt many years ago because I had first made this large bed sized quilt for Quilter's World Magazine:

The bed quilt above is beautiful BUT because it was custom quilted on just about every square inch, it is STIFF AS A BOARD! Beautiful to look at but, I would never give it away - certainly not soft and cuddly. Just a warning - just because a quilt LOOKS beautiful, doesn't mean it FEELS beautiful.
Have a great May Day.
Love the dogwood…but am amazed you say it's stiff! It looks so cozy and inviting!!!! Good advice!ReplyDelete
it might be stiff but it looks wonderful. a calender with a bock a day are you doing the challenge?ReplyDelete
Such a pretty quilt! Stiff or not, it is lovely...ReplyDelete
Your quilt is beautiful, but I so agree with you - I don't like a stiff bed quilt. When I'm making a quilt that I expect to be for a bed I usually like to stitch in the ditch and keep it light.ReplyDelete
I love this quilt! I've been looking for something for my granddaughter. Which issue of Quilter's World did you do this for?ReplyDelete
I love it. Sometimes it is nice just to have something to cover the bed.ReplyDelete
