Yay! I finished with a day to spare…what am I talking about?
My niece bought a new house and the housewarming party is this weekend. Of course I decided to make them a quilt and I pulled my most favorite fabric to make it with – Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis. I only had a layer cake (42 – 10″ squares) so I started planning a few weeks ago what design I would use. I just love the big bold prints so I didn’t want to cut them up into little pieces…hence I made a granny square block using the 10″ squares!
The lighting is really bad in this picture and colors are not true but you get the idea of the design:
And here’s a picture after all the color and border blocks were sewn together. The lighting is still bad but the colors are a little more true
I’ve trimmed and added 3 borders here
And here’s the finished quilt today…I used big free motion daisies all over the quilt…I just LOVE how it turned out!!! It measures just shy of 66″ square
A neutral backing
I made DH hold it up outside for me so I could get some decent pictures in natural light – not sure how successful it was :-s
I’m flying to Maryland tomorrow for the housewarming (which happens to fall on her birthday as well!) – it should be a great party!!! 😀
