This the Aurifil BOM pattern from 2016. The layout is by Pat Sloan and her finished blue and white quilt can be seen here. It is so exhilarating when a labour intensive project is done done done! I know that you understand how many hours went into picking out fabric, cutting out all the pieces, constructing the complex blocks, sewing the sashing and blocks into a quilt top, basting, quilting and then finally binding the edge of the quilt.
I machine quilted each block differently so it really is a true sampler quilt with each block being unique in the design and in the quilting pattern.
For the first time ever I had difficulty sewing the binding onto this quilt because there is no quilting in the borders... just stitching in the ditch in all the border seams.
|Making mountains out of molehills!|
My motto: finished is better than perfect!
Here is the back of the quilt. Nothing fancy, just 3 hunks of fabric sewn together. Maybe you can see the quilting design... straight lines in the sashing and each block quilted with a different pattern.
The finished quilt measures 61" X 80".
Hop over to One Monthly Goal to see more projects finished in November. Linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
