Kelli brought a quilt home to be quilted last week. Can you believe she brought it after she brought her huge stack of unfinished UFOs? Yep another quilt top finish for Kelli.
Well I had a good backing for this quilt so I popped it on the frame. The quilt is Bonnie Hunter’s Scrappy Mountain Majesties (free pattern here). She made hers in a diagonal setting with Civil War reproduction fabrics….I LOVE it.
It was on the frame for a few days with no progress and finally I squeezed in some time to get working on it.
Kelli made this by altering the pattern just a bit. Rather than cut the blocks at 8 1/2″, she cut hers at 6 1/2″. I just love that even though the block is cut into strips, once they are sewn back together the stripes still line up.
I spent a lot of quilting time checking out the fun and interesting designs that came about because of the quilt block design. Check out the diagonal pattern on the left.
Hubby and I both really like this quilt. Kelli thinks she is going to gift it. I keep trying to convince her to get her spare bedroom set up and use the quilt in it.
So far…no luck. I have a feeling that once she holds it and sees it finished she just might change her mind.
I am not letting this one languish in the binding pile. This one is going to get bound and completely finished. It’s too pretty to wait any longer.
