Trip for 2 to Boston

Trip for Two

(although I am forever calling it Tea for Two!) is done except for the label and handsewing the binding down!  That will happen as a hand project while we are on vacation.

You might remember, I first spoke of this one back here.  It was a Blue Mountain Quilter's Guild workshop where we worked on this quilt, designed by Prairie Pieces.  A really fun partner project, where both of you end up with quilt tops.  Now that mine is nearly finished (and I think this might almost be a record for me actually getting a workshop quilt finished within the same year!  It is just over a month since I did that workshop.  Sometimes I amaze myself!), it is going to be a present for a friend we are going to visit while on vacation.  Shhhh!  she doesn't know, but I think we're safe, as I don't think she reads this blog!

I had great fun quilting this using a Leafy Meander from Kim Stotsenberg's book, "Just Leaf It". You should pop over and check out Kim's blog as she does some beautiful quilting. 
I also had a lot of fun piecing the back from leftover strips - I think I like the back even better than the front! (I love the quilting and the quilting is so much easier to see back there!)

I haven't made up the label yet as I'm waiting for inspiration to strike in terms of a name - any suggestions?

Happy quilting!

Beautiful quilt - The Secret Garden just struck me when I looked at it. Reminded me of a story about a beautifdul garden with a Maze in the middle :)
