Ready to Fly!

My Nine patch quit is done! I picked green and white print from Joann fabrics for my border and backing. I think it was a good choice and I am pretty happy about the result.

This quilt measures 40"×46". Pretty small but perfect for a small living room in a small Japanese house. Yes, this is going to fly over to Japan soon. It should be a surprise for the recipient so I thought I shouldn't say whom this is going to. But I guess the recipient would never read this English blog because I usually post same topics on my Japanese blog as well at the almost same time. So she doesn't need to bother herself to read English consulting her dictionary. All right, now I tell you that I made this quilt for my sister (and her family). They built a cute little house a couple years ago. This house is very pretty French country style. My sister and her husband are collecting antiques and decorating the house nicely in soft colors. It looks pretty much shabby chic. Right now I am not a shabby chic person (once I have loved that in my thirties) but I tried to make this quilt to match with their style.

Nina helped me to take pictures of this quilt. I love to see the stained glass effect when it is against in the sun.

You can see more pictures of this quilt at my Flickr pool here soon.
