It’s a "Finally Finished"

Last fall, during my personal scrap challenge, I pieced 195 6” strip blocks and eventually set them together last spring (so my blog tells me {a mind is a terrible thing to lose})

I have had the top hanging in the store since then…unfinished.

Spurred on by the upcoming Quilt Trail bus tour this week, I decided it was time to finish off some of my quilt tops (enter the professional long arm quilters of my community).

I sent this big-un’ to Maggie Porter in Clarkrange, TN.


I love the rolling loopy random look and the use of the red white & blue variegated thread is great. 


In the same scrappy vain, I also pieced the back with an off center black lotus print between the mirror image tan/maroon print.  The lotus on the back is a little larger scale than the lotus used in the sashing on the front.


I love the look of the crinkle of warm & natural batting after the wash.  So soft!

I have 2 other quilts being quilted by other quilters so we will have more sew & tell this week!
