I have been busy this week making another Good Shepherd quilt. This one is for a silent auction to benefit a group of children's homes called Arms of Hope. I used the new Moda wildflower fabric that is designed for the big Texas Shop Hop! If I am not mistaken, it is only available in the shops that are participating in the shop hop. It depicts Texas wildflowers and birds. Below is the original. (I think I like the original best, but sometimes you have to just try things to know. Besides, the new one has the special fabric in it, so it might appeal to people who appreciate "all things Texan". ( I do think it looks better "in person" though.
Both quilts are gorgeous. Love the face of the lamb. It really captured how safe it is on the Shepherd's shoulders.ReplyDelete
Both quilts are beautiful! I like the calming feeling of the original one but also like the top one for the way it depicts nature. Gorgeous!!ReplyDelete
Wonderful choices of fabric! I'm sure the auction will go wonderfully as this is a perfect choice for the name of the organization.ReplyDelete
Really like the background fabric! Good choices!ReplyDelete
This has been my favorite quilt (pattern) all along. The new one is beautiful and I love the choice you made with the new fabrics and I wish good luck at the auction.ReplyDelete
You truly got it again, So right.
I love this pattern! blessings, marleneReplyDelete
The vined leaves around the picture with the Bible verse is beautiful. The 'Texan' Shepherd appeals to me more...and I'm a Northern girl! Great work on both!ReplyDelete
That is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! In both colourways! GENIUS!ReplyDelete
I want everyone to know that the quilt is straight although the photo isn't! I was in such a hurry taking a picture before delivering it, I didn't really notice how crooked it was in the picture. I had it hanging between two supports!ReplyDelete
Very beautiful! I still haven't started mine but I hope to start on it soon. My mom fell in love with it when I showed her the pattern!ReplyDelete
