I just took this little orphan block quilt off the frame and bound it.  I was given several bags of stash and blocks from a lady that passed away several years ago.  Her daughter is an acquaintance of mine and recently her husband was killed in an boating accident.  I made this for her from the last of her Mom's orphan blocks.  More of the story and photos on my blog. http://bunkhousequilts.blogspot.com/2017/07/clothesline-quilt-is-done.html

What a lovely gesture!  The quilting is so nice, love the scenic look to it.  The tulips, then the sky, all reinforce the clothesline. Nice visual.

The quilt is very very pretty and I know the lady will appreciate it.  Your quilting really adds to this simple design quilt and the birds are perfect for it.

What a kind and creative way to use those blocks!  Your quilting is wonderful, and I love the way the blocks and quilting combine to make a beautiful quilt.  Prayers for your friend.

This is so precious.  I love to give "quilt hugs" when people need them and this one is priceless.  Beautiful quilting and such a neat way to pull the orphan blocks together. Especially love your ghost tulips.  It will be such a special quilt for her.
