When I saw her post I decided that I needed to show you all another quilt project that my two girls did years ago! About 11 years ago I had seen a quilt in a Pottery Barn catalog that I just loved; well the girls created a very close replica of that quilt including pillow shams, as a gift for Bob and me and managed to keep it a surprise right up until the "quilting" stage. It is beautiful and we have been using it continuously for 10 years now.
I have some photos here of the quilt as well as a scan of the catalog page that was their inspiration. I am still amazed at how similar it looks!
The whole quilt is hand quilted plus tied at all the corners. They embroidered their initials and date on a backside corner.
Here is the Pottery Barn catalog quilt:
Thank you girls! I love the quilt and I love that you made it!
