Diane’s Lime Green quilt

A striking modern looking quilt by Diane, I’m not sure if she had anyone in mind when she made this quilt. Diane is very giving and very prolific with her quilt making.

This beauty was completed using the Baptist Fan pantograph by Hermione Agee and a Celery coloured thread.

If you can believe it, this is the back of the quilt, striking either way.

And doesn’t the Baptist fan pantograph show up nicely on the back?

Reference to 'lime juice' being prescribed to sailors, date back to the 1700s, are found in the journals of ships' doctors treating scurvy. 'Lime juice', or fresh citrus fruits and juices were found to be the most successful at treating this disease.

Take life with a grain of salt, a slice of lime and a shot of tequila.
