I am so excited to show you a proper finish! This is a pattern called "Memory" by Monique Dillard of Open Gate Quilts. Back in March I participated in a book launch for her latest book Traditional Fat Quarter Quilts: 11 Traditional Quilt Projects from Open Gate Quilts. We were all asked to choose a pattern from the book and make it, or our own variation of it, for the book launch. I had a fabulous collection of fat quarters from the Cocheco Mills II group in my stash, that I thought would lend themselves perfectly to this pattern.
Here it is, finally finished, and draped over my blue garden bench outside the studio.
With one thing and another going on, I never got around to attaching the borders on this pretty quilt. Until this past Sunday, when I put in a marathon day of sewing.
Now, this tradtional style red, white, and blue quilt is ready for quilting!
Gosh I love it when I get something done.
