Finished in August!

Posted by Strlady at 11:42 PM
I was cutting it close but I put effort this weekend and finished my Charming Girls August project.


This one is called The Red, White and Blue because my daughter kept saying she had 'issues' with it being Red, White and Blue. I completed this quilt with one Jelly Roll, two Charm packs, 3/4 yard of the Red border and the Blue border fabric as well as 1/2 yd of a light cream for the sashing. Made with Sandy Gervais Zippity Doo Dah Moda line, it finished at 68 1/2 inches square.

I actually lost alot of the love I had for this one while I was piecing the blocks (remember my commentary on cutting and then auditioning the fabric on my design wall) but when I finally put on the borders...


It won me over. Now I have to baste it and get it quilted. Maybe I can call it my September project too!

I really like it and love the colors. It's going to look great once it's quilted and washed.

Amazing what a border can do! I had the same experience recently. Your quilt is wonderful! I can see why you may have gotten tired of it in the process, but in the end it came to a beautiful finish!
Thanks for your advice on my blog. I couldn't respond as you are set for "no reply".

I like the way the tan calms the RWB. Stunning!

The patriotic quilt is a hit with me. I like the stars that are added to the quilt.

It is wonderful! Did you use a pattern, and if so, can you tell me what it is? I would love to make it for my sister-in-law!
