For my faithful followers you may remember that I finished Joy, for the Queen last summer. I was so proud of this simple patchwork quilt made of Anna Maria Horner's Field Study collection and a Cereopsis voile backing. It was my first attempt at free motion quilting on a full quilt. For months I debated how to label this quilt and now that she is going included in a local quilt show held by the Amherst Quilters' Guild I realized it was now or never!
Luckily, I had an epiphany when I remembered the AMH ribbon I uncovered in my stash while cleaning my studio. At first it the idea seemed a bit excessive, I have been saving this ribbon for a long time...but then I decided this particular quilt is all about the Queen (i.e. Me insofar as my house is concerned) so why not! After all nothing succeeds like excess!
