STRIPED QUILT IS DONE

Done is good.  It did seem to take forever to just decide on the border.  And, as busy as it is, I like it. This is a challenge that Beth put out on her blog.  Go here to see.  I used the X Block, by Patricia Pepe, to make the center blocks.  A blend of Bamboo, Silk and Cotton by Quilter's Dream was used for th batting.  By the way, it was very nice to work with. I chose a backing of dark brown with lots of flower power.   Which brings me to the name:  Flower Power.  And as you can see, it is Trudy tested and approved.   























Quilt happy,

Marilyn

Spectacular quilt. I love how it came out. Most amazing borders I've ever seen. And Trudy is doing such a great job testing out this quilt too. I get the feeling she not only approves it, but loves it like I do. Great job.

hetty said...

I just love your 'Flower Power'! Those striped fabrics look terrific. I usually stay away from stripes, but now that I see your quilt I may have to change that. I also love the appliqued flowers you did on the top. Trudy looks so peaceful, or should I say pieceful, on them.
