Another Secret Reveal

Several weeks ago I quilted this top but did not want to show it on my blog until the owner was able to see it in person. I knew that I would be meeting her at Jo Club yesterday. (see yesterday's post if you want some Jo!)

This was a challenge quilt for me with those prairie points on the outside borders.


I added a bit of whimsy with some butterflies.

The quilt started out as a round robin of borders with her sewing group. She initially made the center and it grew from there.
