Madeline is my niece Wendy's middle child, and is now going to a college in Memphis, TN. A few years ago, I made a quilt for each of Wendy's kids. Maddie likes darker colors, and chose this pattern. It looks a bit complex, but it's really not. I made 9 patches, sewed them together with alternating plain blocks into large 9 patches, set them on point, and put them together with alternating plain blocks again. I like the almost wrought-iron look of the overall lattice. The green fabric is really darker than it appears in this photo, which was taken in full sunlight. I had it longarm-quilted, and like the way the design compliments the quilt.
On another note, I'm very pleased to be able to say that my knee is improving. I will be seeing the ortho doc again on the 16th. I'm hoping it will heal well without having to have surgery. I almost think I could do without the walker now, but I don't entirely trust this knee to not crumble under me.
