Out of Sight, Out of Mind


Almost two years ago I took my daughter-in-commonlaw to the local quilt store to select fabric.  She chose batiks, not my favourite, and quite dark colours.  It took some searching to find a pattern that I thought would showcase the fabric nicely.  The quilt was completed some time ago, but I held off on posting pictures until I had the opportunity to give it.

DSC_0270The pattern is called ‘Keyhole’.  It basically is a nine patch alternated with a solid square set on point.  I backed it with a caramel flannel.  The Quilty Guilt quilted it.  J*** commented she had forgotten what the fabric was, but was pleased with the finished quilt.  I was pleased that a couple days later she posted the following on her fb page.

“The beautiful quilt B’s mom made for me! I chose the fabrics when I was pregnant with A. and sort of forgot what they looked like. I was also caught off guard by my choice to go completely outside my comfort zone (blue, black, grey, but mostly blue). This turned out beautifully and obviously B. saw my vision because it’s absolutely perfect! :)”

I’m so glad she liked it.

Isaiah 22:22

I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David; he shall open, and no one shall shut; he shall shut, and no one shall open.
