Mom's Fantasy

I really find it difficult to name a quilt.  It doesn't come easy to me, and often I just call it by the pattern name. This quilt I made for my mother and asked her what to call it. I believe she replied Mom's Fantasy.  So there you have it.  This is a queen size quilt based on the Cindy Hayes pattern called Vanity Square.  My sister had traveled to India several years ago and surprised me with many yards of indian dyed cottons.  I used these cottons, combined with batiks and printed cottons for an eclectic mix. It is machine pieced and then quilted on my HQ16.  Mom really liked this pattern so I decided it would be the one for her bed.  I'm very happy with how it looks on my guest bed.  It's very rich looking and will probably look even better on her bed with it's unique headboard.
