I meant to post this here and now 2 weeks have gone by and I'm just remembering!! This is my paper pieced potions bottle quilt. I actually made two of them. One of them full sized and the other is a miniature (about crib size, I believe) version. I designed all of the potion bottle blocks and made the quilt tops and Shannon of Rock Creek Quilts did the amazing quilting job on them.

Much more info about these quilts and the patterns are available on my blog post about it. If you click through the images it will take you to my flickr where I have many more photos and pictures of the individual potion bottle blocks. Cheesy

This is beautiful! I love how much fun I can see in this quilt! The person that did the quilting was obviously inspired by your design and echoed the fabric's patterns in the bottles. Just so many nice details here!

That is such a fun quilt! I love all the different bottles, and the quilting goes perfectly with it!
