It is finished. At least for me it is.
In the last months packet, they included an eggplant purple for an inner border and than a coral/orange floral for the outer border that just wasn’t my style. As is, it measures 63 1/2 by 75. On Facebook, I saw pictures of last years sampler BOM that did not include a border and I really liked it. Also, this isn’t the type of quilt I will put on a bed. Will look great on the quilt rack or a hanger for show so it really doesn’t need to be any larger. My quilter assured me that all those seams on the edge won’t matter so I am happy with my decision. Here are a few pictures of some of the sections as I put it together.
The fabric in the geese was also to be used for the border.
These leaves were also fun to make, even if the stem was appliqued on. I really need to up my game on that.
Jeanette is coming on Friday!! I am so excited to have her come to visit. I have two tops ready for her to quilt and am hoping to get a third completed, but it is doubtful.
I started this perhaps two years ago now. Time goes so fast. For my cousin in Colorado. Need to make three more trees, than put it all together. And yes, I know that top tree is missing a piece. There are actually two blocks that have that same error. I am okay with it. Hope Joanie will be too!
