Whispered Lace Meets Delft China – Blogger’s Quilt Festival

Welcome intrepid travelers from Amy’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival,  my awesome followers, and welcome guests to Queenie’s wee corner of the internet. Here is my submission to this season's Blogger's Quilt Festival… (For close up views of any image just click on the photo.)
I call this beauty, “Whispered Lace Meets Delft China”
When Amy first revealed this beautiful quilt pattern I totally fell in love and knew I had to put it on the to-do list.
Queenie decided to challenge herself and limit the color pallet to cool neutrals… 
Of the beige, blue and grey variety…
That really reminded me of beautiful Delft china.
With Delft china in mind, I decided an edge to edge floral pattern of quilting would be a pleasing complement.
This is the first king sized quilt I’ve quilted on my Innova quilting machine named Sir Owen.
And, of course, it was a smooth sailing hand guiding Sir Owen through the quilting.
Another first, was printing my quilt label on the computer. Queenie's quite pleased with the result!
Last month I showed and telled at the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild to many Ooos and Ahhhs.
Most important of all...
It’s gotten the Honey Man seal of approval <3
Quilt stats…
Size: 96” x 96”
Batting: Quilter’s Dream Wool

Queenie, it's good to see you're still in blogland, AND joining Vanessa's tea party.
Your quilts are as beautiful as ever.
Much love,

Oh my, Queenie! I LOVE this quilt (the pattern, the palette, and that Sir Owen served you so well)! A king! That's huge! I'm gobsmacked!
