UPDATE PART 2: QUILT TOP DONE

I finished the "Mary Ellen's Garden" quilt top yesterday.  I thought I was taking a picture straight on but turns out to be a bit of an off-kilter shot but here it is.
I was asked the size and I looked up the pattern dimensions.  Says 45 x 52 inches.  There are some left over scraps that I am thinking about now as to what they would make.  Maybe some basket blocks.  But at least the fabrics are folded and in a stack and not on the floor for me to trip over.

I plan on doing some applique today and some thinking about quilt projects.  I hope you get to do the same.

  10. EVEN better with those borders! You are really tempting me with appliqué when I see this one! The size seems manageable too. But first things first...I've got plenty to keep me busy for now.

  12. Gorgeous finish Karen! The pieced border is perfect for that quilt and the center appliqued block is a showpiece for sure!

    I baked and stitched today so I'm considering it a success :)

  16. Oh, what a beautiful quilt! There is something stately and yet at the same time serene about this quilt. Is it the color combination, the design, or both? I don't know, but it makes me happy just to look at it. Well done!

  28. I love his quilt! I have the freezer paper patterns all cut out for the applique and I am slowed down by trying to decide between repros and brights for the project. Yours is so lovely!
