 Our friend, Lynn, is a super gardener. So it makes sense that her favorite fabrics to use in quilting are florals!!!
Quilt Info: 
Maker: Lynn, Japan missionary & hospice chaplain
Size: 61" X 97"
Batting: Quilters Dream 100% Cotton Select
Thread: Glide--Cotton Candy
Quilting: Fun Flowers from DastardlyLine
"Fun Flowers" so aptly describes this quilting design!!!
Interesting Info: When the world shut down in March, 2020, Lynn ordered a sewing machine online and started to sew. She made 1,000+ masks for Lutheran World Relief. Then Lutheran World Relief switched to asking for quilts. Lynn sewed 120+ quilt tops. Being a new quilter and isolated, she didn't know how to finish them, but she has friends! She turned her quilt tops over to them and they tied and finished them at church for Lutheran World Relief. 

Now that it's gardening season, Lynn is busy growing her beautiful gardens and helping others with theirs, including us! She did get this one quilt top made as a gift for her friend's graduation!

Here are the three fabrics Lynn used in this gift quilt.⤵️ Fuchsia is definitely a favorite of hers, as is strippy quilts. 
Lynn had me quilt and bind this for her. We chose this colorful, fun Kaffe Fassett stripe for the binding!!!⤵️
A wonderful, cuddly flower garden of a quilt, Lynn!!! Your friend will love it!!!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  4. I love the striped binding to finish off a pretty fuchsia quilt. And that she learned to sew/quilt was her positive to come out of the pandemic.

  5. The striped binding is such a great addition to this fun quilt, as is the quilting design, Nancy! Well done, Lynn, for all the sewing of those masks and quilts!

  6. Kudos to her. Love the quilting, it really brought this quilt to life.

  7. It really is a bright and happy quilt! Thanks to Lynn for all she gives, and thanks to Nancy for the tons of love you put into all the quilts you do!

  8. Ooh, I've been wanting to try this quilting design and it looks fantastic on Lynn's quilt! What a wonderful story about Lynn's new sewing adventures. It reminds me of how God is always taking the bad stuff in the world (global pandemic) and using it for GOOD!

  9. Such pretty fabric in this quilt and the the quilt design was perfect, Nancy. Such a fabulous fun quilt. Have a great weekend.

  10. A beautiful finish! The quilting pattern is perfect for the quilt!
