A Finished Quilt!

It has been quite hot here this week (well, anything above 25 degrees celsius is hot for me!!) and it's not exactly quilting weather, however I have managed to get my "Quilt For An Hour" quilt completely finished!
This is a pattern by Judy Laquidara called "Freeze Frame", which she provided to her blog readers last year and if you are interested you can still get the pattern - click here.

Here's my "Freeze Frame" hanging on the clothesline. I think this is a good photo of it and shows off some of the quilting lines. In real life it is not ruffly at the top as it appears to be in the photo...blame it on the clothespins!
Here is my quilt on my favorite lawn chair of the summer...waiting for me to find the clothespins to take the above photo. Obviously I won't need this quilt to lay out in the 30 degree sun!
If you are sitting on your favorite lawn chair drinking some iced tea and surfing blogland on your laptop, and you have lots of time and want to read all about the development of this quilt, from the fabric choices, to the border struggles, and the pieced backing - click here.

Thanks again to Judy for another fun quilt, and I look forward to starting her June mystery - if you want to join in the fun - click here for cutting instructions.

  1. I think I'd call that quilt "Frozen Cappucino". It reminds me of a tall frozen coffee concoction to sip on a warm day. Great job on it.
