Yes....it's good to have another finish under my belt!! I love how my scraps and the vintage repro fabrics mix well together! I am amazed how hot pinks and red reds can play nicely with the soft floral pastels.
Even though some of the darker squares seem to jump out at you....in person this quilt has a soft vintage feeling and look to it. I am so happy it turned out exactly as I had it pictured in my mind. I split my furrows squares using two different fabrics instead of just the one color scheme. I decided not to add borders to it.....just wanted it to look like some of the old quilts I have collected through the years. I don't think mine looks a whole lot like Bonnie's, but her quilts inspire me to be creative and I love to do my own version!! This quilt measures 60" x 66".
I wanted to hand quilt it sooooo bad....but I made this one for a gift and I thought machine quilting it would be best so that she could really use it if she wants. Don't you think it has a 'plaid-ish' look to it ???........I like!
This is my favorite block!! Mr. Brown Dirt went by the fabric store and picked these out for me!
For the binding I chose blue scraps to finish it off with. The backing is some more of that 17 yr. old fabric I also used for the back of my Chunky Churndash.....the one I hand quilted with all those concentric circles....remember? And I 'STILL' have enough of this fabric left to do ANOTHER quilt back.....man, what was I thinking when I bought all that yardage!!!
And a big THANK YOU to all you 'rowdy'.....'clowning' blogger friends of mine for harassing me about not blogging! It's nice to be missed!! I promise.....I haven't been lounging or loafing..........really......I've been stitching away...letting the fabric dust fly!!!
