quilt monday

I love this quilt so much. Love it, love it, love it.

I blogged the start of this quilt here. I was lucky when I bought the fabric that I needed to finish off the border. I took the quilt with me; bought the fabric and went straight to work. Added the missing border to discover that I had 'just' enough fabric if I worked some of the selevage into the border. I had to do it since I didn't bring the fabric leftovers from home; I could have joined them together and made the strip fit. Oh well, no one will probably notice.

I love everything about this quilt; the colours, the quilting. 
I couldn't decide what to do in the center of the quilt so I kept it simple and did an hourglass using the block background fabrics. I love how it is simple enough that it disappears into the quilt.

I knew from when I first started cutting out this quilt that I wanted to quilt it using the Baptist Fan pattern.
And checkout the binding; a fabulous chevron print.

Here's a better pic of the binding. 



  1. The Baptist Fan is perfect.....gives lots of nice texture but doesn't detract from the lovely pattern/piecing. So very pleasant/happy! Hugs....

  2. I love everything about it too. The colours are lovely and calm summery and the quilting is exactly the right pattern for it.

  3. Beautiful and the Baptist Fan looks perfect on it!

  4. Beautiful blocks, and the quilting is perfect. I love it!


I had to put word verification back on; just too much spam! Sorry, I'm not a fan either!!

Thanx for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
