This quilt was finished in a nick of time, just under the deadline of July 31st! If you see any layout mistakes, don't tell me cause it's too late now! LOL
It is called "Plaid Beauty", since it is 100% plaid fabrics in the top and the backing. Some of the fabrics were purchased yardage, and some are cut from old shirts. The finished size of Plaid Beauty is 59" x 71". This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern called Blue Ridge Beauty and was started in a Bonnie Hunter class way back in 2010.
Can you see where I added in a few tiny 4 patches to use up some little plaid scraps? I think it makes the quilt sparkle!
This is the pieced backing, made from leftover plaids. I think it looks nicer in real life than it does in this photo!
Here is "Plaid Beauty" hanging in the tree in my parent's backyard.
I just love this quilt! It has such happy memories and holds lots of positive energy. The problem now is that I was intending to give it away as a gift. But now I find myself hesitating and wanting to keep it.
This photo shows the feather quilting in the border a little better.
To see more finished projects, hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes July linky party.
