I should meander more quilts – this went fast. The colors in the picture are more true than the one I posted this morning. It’s quilted with a maroon thread that blended with the fabric so you see texture not the thread.

    I agree, Mary. Allover meandering is so easy and quick. Plus, it’s a beautiful quilt. I’m sure she’ll love it.
    Silly me. I thought the initials stood for Vermont. Duh.

    Mary, Would you be willing to share this pattern? I have two graduation quilts to make next year. One for our babysitter and another for the girl I interpret for. I love this pattern!

    Beautiful quilt. I’m not crazy about yellow, but in this quilt, it’s a perfect foil for the burgandy.

    Striking quilt! And sometimes a meandering is all it needs.

    Laura’s quilt is wonderful! She’s going to be the envy of her school friends!

    And now that I’m catching up, your Mom’s honeybee quilt is stunning! I’ve definitely put that on my to-do list! Did she hand applique the leaves? It’s gorgeous!

    Just in case anyone is looking for the pattern, it is School Spirit from Quiltmaker, Sept/Oct 2001 #81. Quiltmaker has a “web extra” where you can download the letters in a pdf file. I have been collecting just the right shades of green and blue to do make this quilt ever since I saw it a couple years ago.

    Mary, the quilt is beautiful. Both you and your mother do wonderful work.
