→ Arrow Point Path Quilt ←

My nephew asked if he could order and buy a quilt from me three years ago. I told him I don't typically sell quilts--my business is quilting for others. But since he's family, he just might get one from me someday. I put Andrew's quilt on my quilt resolution list for 2020, and here it is, made in his requested color of blues, in queen size!!! 

Quilt Info:
Maker: Nancy of Grace and Peace Quilting
Pattern: Arrow Point Path by Meadow Mist Designs
Size: 92" X 99"
Batting: Quilters Dream Batting 80/20 White
Thread: Glide--Linen
Interesting Info: DH and I took this finished quilt to Fort Snelling State Park, St. Paul, to get some photos. This is my 12th finish of 13 resolution quilts for 2020!
For background I used a Stonehenge print: ⤵️
I love how this edge-to-edge design, "Raindrops On Water", adds to the ocean feeling of this quilt: ⤵️
The backing has a watery feeling, too! ⤵️
His quilt was delivered today so I'm posting it here. Best wishes, love and prayers, Andrew!!!
   
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  2. It came out great, Nancy! I'll bet this looks really good on the bed, too, with the pieced design on top of the mattress and the negative background space hanging down at the sides of the bed. I have some "resolution quilts" of my own that are nagging at my conscience -- didn't actually make quilting resolutions at the beginning of the year, but if I had, there would be several quilts on the list. Meanwhile, I need to get in touch with our guild's Outreach coordinator to see if I can get some of the tops that other members have pieced, so I can try out some of my new pantograph patterns. !!! :-)

  10. You are on a roll 12 of 13 done! These are my favorite colors, reminding me of the water too. The quilting is perfect. I'm sure he is thrilled

  12. Oh, I have that pattern but just haven't bumped it up on my Priority List! Yours is beautiful! So fun to make a quilt for family who really wants one. And I must say, large quilts really are HUGE to quilt!!!

  13. I read this posting and it made me think of The Quilt Maker's Gift. The woman would not sell her quilts, but only give them to the poor or homeless, of which I know you do. I know Andrew is neither of those things, but he appreciates the beauty of your quilts and talents and he is family. I am sure he loves his quilt. It is beautiful.

  15. This is my favorite of all the quilts you have shared and I LOVE that background fabric. Do you remember what that background is? The Stonehenge collection is very appealing to me. The quilting mixed with the background fabric add such nice texture. Congrats on moving through your resolution list and thank you for linking this fabulous finish up to Put your foot down.

  17. So pretty! Love all the water colors together. That quilting is great--you are right that it looks like water, like a fast-moving river.

  28. Such a gorgeous, lovely and soothing quilt. The quilting is so beautiful. And the photo-shoot is inspirational. I will be looking for a stream/bridge for my next photo-shoot.
    If you are open to adopting a niece, please let me know :-)

  32. Beautiful! I love that your nephew admires your work enough to be willing to order a quilt, and/or canny enough to know you would make him one. He has struck gold with this, it is stunning, and of course beautifully quilted too. Thanks for linking up to Clever Chameleon.
