Sorry…there aren’t a lot of pictures of my finished quilt. It was windy and terribly cold. With it getting dark early, I can’t get photos after the childcare kids leave….UGH. Inside of the house picture just never work well. So here it is…Claudette. It’s a Villa Rose postcard design.
It was a quick top to sew. I originally intend this to be a quilt for the wedding we have this weekend…but, I have someone else I wanted to make a quilt for and I think this one will be better for the “someone else”….so I’m scrambling. I finished this on Tuesday night and quickly made the decision to finish the other quilt and have it for the wedding this weekend. It’s going to be a scramble but I can do it.
The fabrics in this quilt are so fun.
I wasn’t in love with this quilt when I had the top finished…but, I do love it now once it’s quilted. Some quilts need some good quilting to make them shine.
If you at the pattern and the finished quilt you will notice that I added an outer border to the quilt. I wanted it a little bigger.
…and here’s the Ruby picture.
I ended up stopping at Lou Ann’s in Oelwein on my way to Cedar Rapids when we went to see out new grand baby Lucy. I wanted another kit so that if I need another quick gift I could make another. Then Lou Ann tempted me….she had the pattern made up in another color way with kits for each of the samples.
I was so tempted to get them both but ended up going with the same one I previously did. I had some left over fabrics so I could make the same one again only bigger using the leftover fabrics.
This was a fun, easy and fast quilt to sew. If you need a quick gift it’s perfect!
I’m so glad I have this one finished and hope I can make the deadline of the wedding on Saturday to get the other quilt finished!!
