Flapper's Fancy Finished!

Flapper's Fancy is Finished! I actually finished it a couple of weeks ago, but I've been too lazy/distracted to finish my blog post.

I originally designed and pieced this quilt in April 2021. I tried to find blocks in Electric Quilt/Blockbase that aligned along the edges and I think I was pretty successful. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. 

As I previously reported, all the quilt pantographs I used were from Donna Kleinke's Genevieve line. For the extra large blocks, I stitched them out in two pieces, as shown in this Handiquilter video on how to stitch Oversize Blocks. For the sashing, I was fortunate it fit (just barely) in my quilting space and I was able to do the sashing strips without rotating the quilt on-point, so this project actually ended up being easier than anticipated. It really did help that I selected pantographs which came in smaller pieces.

This is basically what I stitched out, though the outer flower border sashing is better aligned on the actual quilt.

This quilt has already been gifted; my brother visited last week, and I sent it off with him to deliver.

But its departure is a little bittersweet because I do really like it so I may dig through and see if I have enough of the Deco Elegance border/medallion fabrics left to make another for myself.

Linking up with:


  1. That is simply gorgeous. I am surprised you were able to give it up.

    1. I didn't want to, but my Aunt picked that one. I felt obligated. LOL

  2. Stunning from fabric choice through quilting.

  3. Fabulous! The quilting is amazing and perfect for the piecing.

  4. Oh, wow, what a stunner! That is just gorgeous. What a neat design - the quilting finishes it off beautifully! That is a real labor of love. I hope your aunt appreciates the value of it. Yes, I'd make another to keep for myself, too.

  5. Oh that is a stunner - whoever it gets to will LOVE it!!!
