Before I show the finished quilt, here is one of the final obstacles I faced in getting this quilt done. This was preceded by helpering with the layout and piecing. Nina and Fred both have nice coloring that sets off the blues and greens nicely, I think.
Okay, enough FEELS for now. I got the final stitches put on last night and in the wash. A quick dry this morning and voila!
I did an all over meander with some extra special designs in the blocks that had a plain center. You can click through to Flickr to see a larger version, but there’s a little heart in the left blocks, and a leaf outline in the right block. I also included fish, flowers, and some other designs.
I’m also loving the stripe of piecing in the back, which is made out of leftover 6″ bits from the blocks. That big piece is the bit I picked up at in the sale room at Tiny Stitches, and the other side is the same fabric as the front border.
Once I show this off in a couple weeks at various guild meetings and Saturday Sampler pick-up, I’ll get it shipped up to my New Niece along with my other niece’s birthday present.
