Wilna’s Quilt by Kathleen

This lovely fresh looking quilt was made as a Christmas gift for Wilna the mother of Kathleen’s former nanny Jan.  You might recognize the pattern from CamilleRoskelley’s book Simply Retro, the pattern is called Vintage.

Jan liked the Blowin’ Wind Pantograph by Jodi Beamish and she picked a very pale aqua thread called Cloud.

Kathleen almost always incorporates back art in her quilts, so beautiful, it’s like having two quilts in one.

A closer look at the back and quilting.

Jan was thrilled to see the finished quilt and so excited to send it off to her mom for Christmas.

Christmas time at Kathleen’s is a delight in decorations and gifts, she is busy making all kinds of thoughtful gifts for members of her extended family and Jan is part of the Christmas team.

You are most likely to stumble upon happiness while attempting to make others happy.
