Sweet Tea goes home

My Sweet Tea quilt is off to a new home.  First a photo of her with binding and fresh out of the dryer.

I started this quilt because I saw a pattern at Moda Bake Shop for a jewel box quilt.  I had purchased this beautiful layer cake of Summer Breeze.  I enjoyed putting together this quilt and the pattern is likely one I will do again in a very different color palette.

When I was making the quilt, I had this feeling I was making it for someone.  Shortly after the quilt top was pieced, I found out that a good friend had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  This lovely Carolina native is  true southern girl so the name Sweet Tea fits her new quilt and really her outlook on life.  I hope this quilt brings her a little bit of sunshine each day.  (Ignore the flipped photo from blogger - this is my quilt label.)

One last photo of the wonderful quilting Kathy Kirk did - the quilt pattern is called Pretty Posies and the quilt is 65 by 58 inches.

This pattern is a twist on the Jacob Ladder pattern.  I've decided to join a Jacob's Ladder QAL sponsored by the Empress of the Universe.

Happy Stitching!
