My Rhododendron Trail lap quilt flimsy is finished! This uses up all the leftover pieces after finishing my queen-size quilt
I obviously made a few minor changes. The original pattern only called for ½-inch wide sashing and I decided to make mine 1-inch wide. I reversed the position of the yellow and cream fabric on the border geese. Also, I decided to add an outer border so I wouldn't have to worry about those geese coming unsewed while I quilted it. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough of the aqua color fabric so I decided to bracket the geese in two burgundy borders. Now I just need to figure out what to use for a backing.
This was actually my second flimsy finished this week. I also finished the Eggplant Enchantress on Monday.

Two lovely flimsies. Got chuckle of all the modifications you made out of necessity or design in the Rhododendron Trail quilt. Never have selected a pattern I didn't feel a need to tweak.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I tried to make myself follow the directions exactly, but I just couldn't do it. LOLDelete
