Last week my tasks were to work on my Morris Garden quilt. Since I'd already cut the white triangles out, I needed to start putting together the blocks and assemble the quilt per the plan. It took a couple of days, but I finished the central blocks.
I'm really pleased with how the kaleidoscope squares turned out. It's difficult to see in the larger photo how the vines and leaves are all twisted up.
I still need to add the border. I had planned to just put on a basic border with a mitered corner, but now I'm wondering if I can maybe match the corners so the design aligns. Since the repeat on the border fabric is very small (less than 3") it may be possible, but I need to lay it out and see how close it is.
I had planned to finish over the weekend, but I went and picked up some library books instead and that often distracts me for a couple of days. This time I got several quilt books and I scanned the designs I liked and ended up playing with Electric Quilt again. LOL
My list for this next week:
- Finish adding the border.
- Make the backing.
- Make 2 sets of pillowcases.
That is a gorgeous quilt! Congratulations on your progress!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I'm glad I gave this quilt a try. I was worried it would be too difficult for me.Delete
I love it...xoxReplyDelete
Thanks Cheryl! I still haven't figured out the border, but hopefully I will soon. I'd like to do something fancy, but I'm bad at math.Delete
Beautiful... the fabrics are perfect for that design...ReplyDelete
Yeah, I was pleased when I found the design and realized this set would be perfect for it.Delete
Oh my what a beautiful quilt! Your fabrics are exquisite. Can't wait to see how you border it. Did that border fabric come with it, or did you buy it separate?ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday!
That border fabric was part of the same fabric line, but when I bought them I wasn't sure what pattern I would be making.Delete
Such a labor of love, Sharon. Absolutely gorgeous quilt.ReplyDelete
