Naomi's Carpenter Star

Angi made this for her daughter, Naomi.  I love the fabrics and colors she chose.  I wonder if Naomi's home is done in greens and browns... When I am quilting, I often think of the piecer and/or recipient.  Think, in terms of their lives, their interests, their futures, their jobs, etc.  Sometimes I turn off all sound when I am longarming.  This quilt reminds me of a grassy meadow and pine trees...  soothing.    I know Naomi lives in a huge city, quite far from a mountain meadow, but maybe she really loves pine trees and meadows?  





Longarmers, do you ever think about who will receive the quilt that you are quilting?

Oh my golly!! Your quilting is stunning!! It suits the quilt so well!! The idea of meadows and pine trees is so lovely. I think it's special that you really think about the people who make and who'll receive the quilts.
