Aged Elegance Flimsy

This month's Friday Night With Friends seemed like a good excuse to finish up the Aged Elegance quilt I started last month. It took me a couple hours to fussy cut the border and then I got it sewn on with mitered corners. And it's finished! 
This pattern was a free pattern called Pansies in Paradise by Debbie Beaves.

This quilt flimsy was made from Aged Elegance fabric by Wilmington Prints I purchased in 2009. I'm glad to finally get this stack off my fabric shelves but I will admit I don't like this quilt enough to spring nearly $200 to have it machine quilted. Instead, I'm going to put it in my Hope (I get a longarm) Chest. It will eventually get turned into a quilt, but it will be a while.

Linking up with Brag About Your BeautiesFinished (or Not) FridayPeacock PartyTGIFF, and Whoop Whoop. I hope you all have a good weekend.

    1. Thank you. I keep choosing fabrics that need to be mitered so I've been getting practice.

    1. It's a pretty striking pattern. I'd be surprised if it hasn't been published before.

  4. I like your color palette much better than the one in the free pattern. So beautiful and the border fabric is gorgeous also!

  5. Your mitered border looks amazing -- the seam is virtually invisible, like the print is just flowing naturally around the corner! Gorgeous finish all around. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF this week!

  6. I loved visiting your blog and seeing your lovely quilt. Like the others I zoomed in to see your nicely done mitered corners, lol. Also thank you for the links to the free patterns. I've been very enamored by the Jinny Beyer quilts since I first starting quilting in 2010. I have a long arm in the Boise area and also in the Bay area and you can come and quilt your quilt for free if you would like. Or I could do a simple meander or loop for a modest fee if you pay the shipping.

    1. Yeah, I have a fabric hoarding problem. I'm not so good at sewing it up faster than I buy it.
