Aunt Georgia #2

A few posts back I told you about my coworker Lauries
Great Aunt Georgia that recently passed away....this post shows the second quilt that I made using Aunt Georgias blocks, this one is for her son Johnny.

Here is the beautiful Hand Pieced Hexi block that she 
made, we once again used it in the center of the quilt.  
I then used fusible web to attach it and I did a little hand stitching around it.  Laurie wanted Johnnys initials in the center of the block. Johnny is a landscaper so she picked out these wonderful botanical type prints for the quilt.  Once again, she has great taste and is wonderful with color!

I then bordered it with this beautiful butterfly botanical 
print and used more of Aunt Georgias hand pieced blocks 
for cornerstones...

Please excuse my ugly foot!

Behold!  The finished quilt top! Beautiful!!

This is my assistant Buck 

Sweetest boy ever!

Another finish!  Whew!

  1. Lovely. I think you did an excellent job turning that block into something to treasure.
