This week I finished a project! You can see it here. That means I have movement in my stash report.
Kelli and I are finishing up a Moda Bake Shop project. I need to get the borders on it and then quilt it. While I am busy doing that, Kelli is busy and off working on other projects.
She brought her Virginia Bound quilt to show me…AMAZING, right??
The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter’s book, Scraps & Shirttails: Reuse, Re-pupose, Recycle! The Art of “Quilting Green”. Kelli likes everything small so she adjust the blocks so they finish at six inches instead.
We started our Virginia Bound quilts when we went to the quilting retreat in Moline last spring. Before we left, Kelli was debating and debating about what fabric to make hers from. I suggested using some of the big scraps that people had sent to us. So often people send us their “crumbs” because they don’t want them. Their “crumbs” are actually strings or pieces that can be cut to strings…way bigger than what I call crumbs.
Well Kelli took those, put them together and made this….
Of course, Kelli stopped with only the center finished and no borders added…that’s classic Kelli. With a little prodding, I could be able to get her to work on some borders. Maybe if all of you leave some comments of encouragement, she’ll get back to working on it!
Now back to my stash report….

Job will done Killi, it is beautiful. I like boarders on most all quilts. To me they seem to frame a quilt.
This beautiful quilt deserves beautiful borders so it will be more than beautiful but splendid.
You’re very lucky to have people who send such crumbs.

Gorgeous, Kelli! I just love all the fabulous colors in the quilt. It’s really fun! Can’t wait to see what you pick for your borders! A+!!!
Such a fabulous scrappy quilt…I love it! I don’t love putting on borders either, so I vote for no borders and moving on to the next quilt!!
I hate to be contrary, but that quilt is perfect the way it is! Borders might just take away from it! It’s gorgeous!
LOL – perhaps Kelli is hoping that YOU will add the borders! :) Fabulous top Kelli! I’ll save the confetti throwing for when you get those borders on. :)
I think Ranch Wife is right. Quilt looks great. Maybe a thin blue with wide orange would look nice.
yep, I’d say skip the border and get’er done. Such a busy bunch of fabrics just a simple line of colour around the edge would finish it off.
Kelli, Your quilt is gorgeous but will look even better when the borders are on and it’s finished!! Keep going!!
Great quilt, Kelli, and I LOVE the smaller blocks! Now be the great kid you are (I’m MUCH older than you), and get a border or two on this. Sew, Kelli, sew!!! :-)
Kelli’s quilt is beautiful. I love scrappy. Gracie thinks so too…I can tell! -grin-
Kelli’s Virginia Bound quilt is wonderful!! It is on my list of want to do. Good job.
What a wonderful scrappy quilt! Scrappy quilts are always fun.
Kelli, I have good news & I have bad news.
The good news: your quilt is over the top gorgeous (& yes, I cannot wait to see it with borders!)
The bad news: you have just added *ONE MORE QUILT* to my “oooh I must make that list”.
I’d better get to piecing; clear out a few UFO’s so I can start on that.
Thanks for sharing.
I adore the quilt Kelly is there a pattern on it or better yet a tut? Whar is it called?
This is Virginia Bound. It is in Bonnie Hunter’s book Scraps and Shirttails book 1.
