June One Monthly Goal Done!

My One Monthly Goal for June was to finish my Jamestown Landing Quilt. The quilt was started in a class last August with Bonnie Hunter.

I would have liked to photo this outside and get a look at the whole quilt, but I don't have a good spot to do that right now. 

I used an all over fan to quilt it--I like the texture.  

I'm not sure where it will end up--maybe I should have made it table size!

The quilt was made "by the book" until it came to the borders. My inner border is slightly wider as I already had the strips cut. The outer border is slightly narrower--and I'm not sure why--lol! I also mitered the corners because I thought it was a nicer finish. 

Jamestown Landing is in Bonnie Hunter's book String Fling.

I  think I mentioned before that the binding was finished by machine. I used a wide muslin for the back--just wasn't in the mood to piece one and the muslin was on hand. 
You can see that my fan quilting is far from perfect! 
Willow and her Chippy seem to approve!

    La courtepointe est magnifique mais elle ne rivalise pas avec Willow qui est super mignon.
    Amicalement.

  21. I have to say that fan quilting is my all time favorite to do. Certainly looks nice on your blue and white quilt. I wish I had your long table....but I really wouldn't have the space for it.
