There was a time when I didn't think I would make this quilt.
The colors just didn't speak to me.... blah and boring.
Why did I sign up for this BOM??
Well, I decided to pull out the patterns and fabrics last month
and started making the blocks.
At first I wasn't thrilled,
but when I got to MY colors...
the jewel tones, I became more interested.
Let me just say...
I could not be happier with this finish!
The blocks are all sewn together, waiting for the borders.
The borders have been added!
I almost left off the 2 1/2" square middle border, but am so glad I didn't.
It just pulls it all together.
(It is really difficult for me to get a good photo of this quilt. It's Huge!!)
My husband loves this quilt.
I said I was thinking of giving it to my
goddaughter, who is newly engaged, as a wedding gift
and he said "NO WAY! This one is staying here!"
One downside to using this fabric...
it frays like CRAZY!
This is just a Small portion of the threads removed from this quilt.
I think I could have stuffed a pillow.
Now to get the backing pieced and then it's off to the quilters.
