NEW QUILT DONE

Fresh out of the dryer.  A finished quilt.
My DH is standing on a step stool holding the quilt up as best as he could.  The quilt is made with lots and lots of reproduction fabrics.  The center section has a broderie perse applique.  I do not remember the name of the pattern or designer.  It was from a magazine from a few years ago.  Mary from Quilt Hollow did the machine quilting.  I chose the Baptist Fan and am pleased with the result.  I like the way the light squares in the pieced blocks form a sort of window pane design.

All done and ready to use.

Wow, Sharon, I really like this one and your DH is doing an excellent job.

It's a gorgeous quilt! I like the color palette you chose and love the window pane effect you mention. One of the things I love about some quilts is the secondary designs and patterns that appear when all the blocks are sewing together. Enjoy!
