This absolutely wonderful quilt designed and donated by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Franson! is a total stunner. A blog/site that I would always recommend to anybody interested in quilting and patchworking. Her aesthetic is beautiful, her instruction clear and concise and definitely the best resource besides taking a quilting class from her at Modern Domestic when you happen to not live in town. This quilt was also part of her beautiful book Practical Guide to Patchwork available on Amazon.
Because of it’s larger dimension, the unique design and the exquisit stippling (I tried it myself yet need a loooot of practice until I am anywhere near Elizabeth’s skissl), we priced it at $200. No wonder it sold immediately. I myself purchased it – the color scheme beautifully bridges my daughters bedroom colors and it will always be a keepsake, reminding me of QfQ.
There are over 10 more quilts to be posted over the next few weeks! We are posting each M,W,F – so come back and see what’s still available and consider donating to Mercy Corps.
If you are interested in purchasing any of the quilts posted so far.
