I began designing the Tiger Lily quilt way before Christmas. This is the first EQ drawing. The one I decided I was going to make.
After I finished the applique blocks, I cut out one 9 patch and decided it would be much "too busy" for the look I was trying to achieve. The 9 patch blocks were fighting with the applique blocks for attention. lol
So I decided to use plain blocks.
I like the look much better.
I still added the same applique scallop border but decided I needed extra borders to make the quilt larger. Thus the 3 outside borders.
Then the creative juices started to flow and I remembered that Kendra, my niece, had a tattoo on her foot that says "Walk by Faith". I looked up the bible quote and added it to each border.
So, I feel that I . . .
added a part of Kendra to the quilt and offered the couple a few "words of wisdom" to live by. I also decided to rename the quilt "Walk by Faith".
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
