Below is a photo of the back of the quilt. Dan sent his gal Rachel on a scavenger hunt throughout town. Each stop was a place that had special significance to their relationship. There were pictures, letters, ballons and a gift. Besides the ring, this is one of the gifts she found.

I was a bit concerned about quilting it. This fabric doesn't have the body that cotton fabric does. Cotton fabric will stay where you put it, and this linen moved if a fly flew across it. My worries came to an end after quilting this one below. Linda made this quilt for her daughter. She wanted the whole top made out of linen, top and backing. It loaded up pretty easily, and quilted beautifully. I used a 100% wool to get some loft.

I've read quite of few of Jennifer's books, and I must say I've enjoyed them all. Her Elm Creek Quilt Novels feature comtempory, as well as historial fiction, and her characters, no matter from which era, have a way of capturing your heart!
I have been given a copy to give away, so leave a comment, and tell me which one of her books is your favorite!! Make sure you leave me your email address so I can get in touch with you.
This quilt shown below is one that I quilted for one of my local quilt shops just yesterday. The fabric line was designed by Jennifer Chiaverini. The line is called Caroline's Collection by Red Rooster fabrics.

I like using triangle papers. I have a CD called "Triangulations", and I can print out lots of different size templates for half square triangles. That's my fav way to make them. No trimming once they are cut. Accurate beyond a doubt. Yes, I have to tear away the paper, but I can do that while I'm waiting for blogger to upload my photos! :)
