Tony has been stuck many a time patiently waiting when Brendan stumbles upon quilts. Whether it be in a store, an auction, or worst, the quilt displays at the New York State Fair, Brendan needs to look at the design, construction and color palette.
Well he finally took up the mission to learn how to sew and quilt. It started off with simple valance curtains (which have been posted on our Facebook page). But after a quick small quilt made as a gift for close friends who are expecting their first baby soon, it was off to a big project.
The design was inspired by the Missouri Star Quilt Company and a YouTube video (which is at the end of this post) that Brendan saw. Using fabrics that would compliment the room (from many different locations). The top quilt was done (with the exception of the borders) and displayed below. It took a while, but we finally found a place to machine quilt it. (We've been a little lax in posting pictures.) For now, when you visit, you can take a peek at the finished product.
