Lots of things have happened since the last post obviously,but what this post is about is...
The Freeform Rail fence quilt from the book Cultural Fusion. Here it is ready for the binding to be added. Just need to wind a couple bobbins first.
Binding attached to the backside of the quilt and pressing said binding in progress. This quilt has been a journey. It all started from a conversation with one of my best friends! Jamie,over at busy bee quilts we were talking about quilts/projects we were currently working on. She mentioned the book Cultural Fusion by Sujata Shah,so I of course checked it out online and ended up purchasing it.
Cotton and Steel fabrics are some of my favorites and were the obvious choice for this personal quilt. Being the Sweet friend she is Jamie sent me some coordinating prints she found at her local Joann's!
This past fall I joined a swap over on instagram and by chance was paired up with Jenn of JT Quilting . What a fortunate chance it was as we have become good friends :)
After making all the blocks I got to thinking about the usual tug of war/blanket wars during the colder months...so decided to make the quilt top larger by adding a narrow border and then another scrappy border. Now the quilt is large enough that both the hubby and I will stay warm and cozy all fall/winter long!
This quilt is now on our bed and we will be sleeping under it tonight for the first of Many many nights to come. Thank you Jamie and Jenn for helping me create this beautiful quilt!
