I made this quilt for my grandmother, and had originally intended to give it to her for her birthday (May 1st), but I wasn't able to finish it in time, so I gave it to her on Mother's Day instead : ) It is a combination of nine-patch quilt blocks and snowball quilt blocks. I hand embroidered some of my favorite Bible verses on 12 of the snowball quilt blocks. That part was very time consuming, but it is what I really love about the quilt.
A word of advice to anyone who is thinking of making a similar quilt. The embroidery done in yellow floss is difficult to read, so I would recommend using darker colors for the embroidery. Otherwise, I am very happy with this quilt. It turned out just the way I envisioned it : )
Here is a close-up photo of the embroidery:
I apologize for the blurriness of this photo. I wanted to get some pictures before I wrapped the quilt and I didn't really take my time. I hope it is still a good representation of the quilt ; )
