Kathy's Beautiful Quilttop

Tuesday afternoon, my friend, Kathy, came over and spent the afternoon with me.  It was so good to have her here - and she brought along some of the things she has been working on and some she is going to be starting.  This beautiful piece is Edyta Sitar's Friendship Strips and Scraps, but done in Kathy's beautiful colors.  The baskets are from striped fabric rather than strip pieced.  Gorgeous.  The applique is done with the machine buttonhole - check out the bird's beak.  She certainly has mastered that art. 
A look at more of the baskets.  When this quilt is completed, it will be covered with absolutely beautiful machine quilting - little bitsy circles, feathers and other awesomeness. 

Two of the baskets for a closer look.    I look forward to seeing her completed quilt - it will be a beauty.

That is a beautiful quilt! Gorgeous fabrics and I love how the handle of the basket is a flower. Just wonderful!

Take care and have a good weekend!
