That title sure sounds scary! But today is the draw for a large quilt I
quilted for our Guild last year. Do you remember this one?
Well, the draw is today and the hospital asked me to come and
perform the draw. I thought that was pretty neat and thoughtful.
So, off I go later on today, to make the draw.
Here are some close up of several blocks.
Here is how the borders were quilted.
It was amazing too because the quilt sold 4,000 tickets! Wow!
I promise to get a picture of the full quilt today .
I am also excited that the main body of Lily of Rosenberry is also completed.
It has only taken me a year to get this far but I think it was well worth
This is a pattern by Sue Garman. It is all hand appliqued and
awaiting the border. I decided to complete the border just
like in the pattern.
Might as well finish it totally and I really
don’t know what type of border I would replace the original
with anyways. Now, only 360 berries to make for the border.
Here is a close up of the center of the quilt.
I chose different colors due to what was in my stash. It looks
fresh and spring like. We all could use some spring colors right now.
Can you believe the pattern and design that only one block can make?
It always fascinates me how color and pattern can change
and look so different.
Have a great week and check out Freshly Pieced.

Beautiful quilts. Thank you for sharing them with us. A whopping 4000 tickets – wow!
What a gorgeous quilt from just one berry block!
Yes, isn’t it amazing what one block can look like.
That’s a fabulous number of raffle tickets sold – not surprising, it is a beautiful quilt! The new one is a stunner, too.
I am in awe of the amount of work such a beautiful quilt must be. You sure have stick-to-it-ness!
Thanks for your encouragement. I guess my stubborness is paying off. It is funny but one has to do a little each day and eventually the whole quilt gets finished.
That applique is amazing. Truly.Amazing.
Stoppin by from WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, Congrats and I really need to wip it up to catch up with everyone..
Your applique quilt is gorgeous. Such a lot of work, and you have done it beautifully.
Incredible quilts both! Not a surprise to me that 4ooo tickets were sold ….
That appliqué is insanely gorgeous. Really truly stunning.
3,600 berries! Wowsers! You are impressive.
I am not surpised that 4000 people would want that quilt / as to the second one, it is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t imagine making all of those little circles! You are amazing! 🙂
Both of the quilts are incredible. Beautiful work. 4000 tickets. 3600 berries. Girl you work with BIG numbers! lol
Visiting from WIP WED.
Ruth! I am so impressed with both of these quilts! Your work on the draw quilt really brought it to life. And your applique – amazing!! ALL THOSE BERRIES! Absolutely gorgeous colors for it. How do you do your berries? Do you have a technique to deal with prepping them in large batches when you need a ton of them? So glad you linked up at BOMs Away, because I really enjoyed your eye candy!
Thank you for showing so much of the quilting, on the hospital quilt. It’s gorgeous. I’ve never seen the Lily of Rosenberry quilt, before. I love the colours you’ve chosen. Sometimes our stash is the best place to shop. Your work is simply stunning. I think Lily might end up on my wish list of “quilts to make” but I can’t imagine finishing as much as you have, in a year.
Ruth did you do all of that beautiful quilting on the Charity Quilt? Those feathers are awesome! And Congrats on so many tickets sold! Also wanted to mention I have the Lily of Rosenberry pattern but haven’t started it. Your post could sure inspire me to get going on that! I love the colors you choose and look forward to hearing more about your appliqué process. It is just beautiful! Have a wonderful day. Karen
