FINALLY..........


I finally finished this quilt today........

The blocks in this sampler quilt were made by Robin, Michelle and I last year.

I set them and put the side borders on at least 6 months ago. I made the decision the other night that I was going to have it finished and quilted before Thanksgiving. I totally forgot I didn't have the top and bottom borders on and when I went for the fabric I realized I didn't have any kona black left, which is why I probably never finished. So, I went and got the kona, got the backing fabric, put the borders on, pieced the back and voile...it's done!!! This picture isn't very good so you can't really tell that the fabrics are all 30's. Once it's quilted I'll show another picture up close of a few of the blocks.
So, did anyone see any snow today? I didn't but parts of New Jersey did have snow.....

Peg, this is lovely! Thirties fabrics are a theme most of us enjoy, and if you click to enlarge, it can be seen. One question, did you have any problems with the Kona black fabric and "bearding"? I used it for a BOM and the result isn't good. Little tiny strands of the batting are coming through everywhere. What do you think, could it be my batting instead of the Kona?
