This is Block #11 of Over the Meadow, the Block of the Month quilt that started last March and will end in February. It is turning into one of my all time favorite quilts. (Although I agree with Linda (Brannock) that my favorite quilt is always the one I'm working on.)
And I am working on this one. After the Santa block there is only one more and the quilt will be complete. (And could the lady who asked me to please substitute another block for the Santa one for religious reasons, please get in touch with Tori or Byron at 816-632-7632- I can't find where I wrote your information. Sorry.)
Anyway, my quilt is almost done. It sewn together and beginning to look like a quilt instead of a series of blocks. Everything is on but the outside borders. It will be ready to go to Lori's to get quilted tomorrow. I am so excited!
Here are the borders and sashing that will be shipped with the block this month - fabric from the Classic Wovens and Together fabric lines.
The picture is good but the quilt is awesome - even if I do say so myself. It is really neat when the actual quilt turns out to look like what I saw in my mind's eye months ago. And this one did.
I'll show it all to you next month with the last block but meanwhile you'll just have to be patient and use your imagination. The blocks are on the side bar.
I am such a meaney :)
Meanwhile, next year I'm changing gears and going back to sending the Featured Fabric quilt out in blocks of 3 starting in April. It's going to be an Album quilt with flowers - coxcombs of course along with others. I'll post a drawing on the blog soon along with sending an email.
Meanwhile, I'm quite content. I just love Over the Meadow!
