I made this quilt for my older son and his wife, Kevin and Lisa. These were the colors Lisa specifically requested. And because it reminded me of Mint Chocolate Chunk ice cream, that is what I'm naming it.
I swear, I'll never eat another bite! Never!
The gal who does my machine quilting, Siriporn, is a true artist. Throughout the entire quilt she did the beautiful feather stitching that you see in the chocolate outer border. It's one of her "basic" quilting designs.
Last year I made this "Four Sisters" quilt (from Eleanor Burns' "Still Stripping..." book) for my mother-in-law (who is one of four sisters). Not that you can see it, but Siriporn quilted it with another of her basic designs that, to me, was pretty amazing. Can't imagine what one of her intricate designs might look like!
Everybody else will be getting store bought gifts!!
