Design Wall Monday

Last week at this time I had the
blocks for this quilt about
half done.
I thought about stopping there,
I had all of the pieces cut
and what would I do with those?

I persevered and here is the 
Completed top!

This quilt is from
Jo Morton's book
"Coming Home."
One of my LQS's had it made up and
I loved it, so I purchased a kit.

This was a humbling quilt to make.
For some reason I had difficulty
matching points and getting things even.

I also did not like the large beige outer
border on the original quilt,
so I just stopped after adding the 
narrow borders.

I will send this to my
Long Arm Quilter
and have a new quilt at

Visit Patchwork Times for some
quilty eye candy!

Happy Quilting!

That's a great quilt, love the greens you have in there, so vibrant.

This quilt is on my ever growing list of quilts to make. I love yours, and I agree about the outer border. I like it just as you have it. Well done!

Love this quilt. That is a lot of half squares to match up.

It's beautiful and would make a fantastic Christmas quilt with those colors :)

Looks lovely! I can imagine all those points kept you on your toes but in the end everything looks perfect from here.

very pretty and the points look great! I like it ending on the darker borders too. Great job!

Jackie said...

Any trouble you had with points certainly doesn't show in this quilt. You did a really great job with it! I was in Jo's Little Women club for several years and learned a lot. She writes a good pattern!

Beautiful quilt. Any troubles you had don't show up in the pictures!

Oh so pretty. I recognize it from the book. Maybe it should go on my short list. For as much as I am loving my kits, I am now thinking I ought to buy kits instead of make my own if I come across one so pretty. Thanks for visiting.

Well that is beautiful! Those blocks are a lot of work. You did good. I just wandered over from Quilting Nonnie where you left a comment on my blog. I guess we were both Christmas minded today!

Beautiful! Glad you finished it. This is wonderful!

Your quilt looks perfect to me. The colors are great and it will be a lovely Christmas quilt. I have never done a Jo Morton pattern, but now I might have to check into it. I'm leading toward more simple patterns these days and not the humbling ones, but I do like to make HST.
