Last summer I went on a Minnesota safari (OK, I was driving along the freeway, on my way to visit my mom). I stopped in at Aunt Annie's Quilts in Avon, Minnesota... a tiny town with the best-ever quilt shop. The owner, Lucy, is a gifted artist. She had some samples for sale, and I decided to splurge and buy one for myself.
All I did to this beautiful quilt was add the outside, black border. Then I took it to my favorite machine quilter, Diane S., and she did a fabulous job of quilting it. I just picked it up this afternoon. It is now an even more gorgeous quilt than ever! Don't you agree??
I call it Minnesota Safari for the animal- and safari-related fabrics, and due to my traveling the roads of Minnesota which resulted in me obtaining this wonderful quilt. I feel so lucky to own this.. it's beautifully pieced by Lucy and beautifully quilted by Diane (both superb artists), so I'm very pleased that this quilt is mine. It's truly a work of art!
