In the past few days I’ve been trying to get some flower blocks done that will be used in a block swap this weekend. I intended on showing those blocks in today’s blog post but when I went to take the photos, I discovered that my camera battery was completely drained. Doh!
So instead I have some photos of a quilt I finished last month and never got around to blogging about. In October I made two quilts from my Whirled quilt pattern. I showed the first one here.
This second one was made simply because I fell in love with the fabric in the border. I mean come on! It’s pretty, isn’t it? I think I’d love a whole cloth quilt made from this!
This print is from a line called “In My Room” designed by Jenean Morrison for Free Spirit. I found it one afternoon as I was browsing in a local shop that I don’t visit very often. I immediately fell in love with it!
I found several fat quarters to pull in the pinks, greens and peachie colors from the border. The gray dot for the inner border and binding were a bit trickier, but I love what I ended up with.
The finished quilt measures 50” x 64.” I quilted it with a meandering loop pattern with a few double loops thrown in – one of my favorite all-over quilt designs. And this pretty little quilt has found a new home! One of my sisters has claimed it and it is on it’s way now to Northern Idaho.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a great weekend! (hooray for Fridays!)
