Hunky Dory


Everything here is just Hunky Dory and I'm happy about that :)
I had a request back before the holidays from a teacher in school for a quilt for her daughter's high school graduation. I've known Kathy's daughter for at least 6 years and was thrilled to be asked to make such a special quilt. I gave her some pattern and fabric options and she picked " Square City" which was designed by Julie Herman. The pattern was in the May/June 2010 Mc Calls Quilting Magazine and she made hers in Hunky Dory by Chez Moi, so you know I had to do Kathy's in the exact colorway. I collected everything up and it's been sitting waiting for the perfect time...and today was the day.

I worked on the block assembly this afternoon and then after dinner I decided I had to get the rows assembled before I went to bed. Well, that happened but I just couldn't bear to go to bed with the rows laying over the ironing board so I got them all connected and ironed flat....NOW I can go to bed. I absolutely love how it came out and I'm hoping Kathy's daughter will too.
Now to get the backing done and off to the quilter this week.
