This project was a long time in the making. I started it in May while teaching a class at Chestnut Bay Quilting on the Lotus pattern by Jaybird Quilts. It was a gift for my sister-in-law. This is another one of those "deceptively easy" patterns that looks complicated but is not really. I made 4 Lotus quilts this year - and would definitely make one again!!!
The toughest part on this one was the quilting - it is a very big quilt and I decided on straight line quilting - not hard but time consuming wrestling it under my little machine.
I love how this one turned out - parting with it was tough but we visit them often so I will get to snuggle under it again sometime... I hope (unless she keeps it hidden!). I love how it is soft and feminine - but not so frilly that it won't fit well in a household with my brother and 2 nephews. (and I also love that I have more of this fabric!!!)

|The back is this wonderful mottled batik. It was tough to get a shot of the quilting but it created these wonderful diamond and triangle shapes on the back.|
