Hand Pieced Quilt Top

Did you join in on the hand piecing quilt along hosted by Kristin and Patty
It was a refreshing project to work on a little at a time. I fell a bit behind when the blocks were being posted weekly, but managed to catch up eventually.
This is how the quilt top looked with all the blocks stitched together. It's a bit of a mishmash without sashing, but I didn't have anything that worked in the stash, so it is what it is!

I had a relaxing time over the Easter weekend stitching the borders on. And to maintain my energy level I did eat a few chocolate eggs left behind by the Easter bunny! Here is the finished quilt top with the lime green borders attached. I like it much better with the border on and have enough of that green fabric left for the binding.




I look forward to hand quilting this lovely sampler over the summer months. It is the perfect size for a portable quilting project.
Hop over to the Finale Party where you can see amazing finished quilts and so many lovely layouts of these blocks.

It's Day 3 of the Be a Diamond blog hop. Here's where to hop:

  3. That is so pretty, Kathy! I love the Spring-y colors you used, and the green border is perfect for it, too. I've seen so many lovely versions of these blocks that I'm tempted to make another set of them!

  4. A hand pieced top absolutely deserved to be hand quilted. And the border fabric really does bring it to life. Love your fussy-cut corners.
