My Front Porch top is complete!
Well, there may be a little more tweaking as I take a closer look at the whole quilt pinned up on the wall, but I'm pretty happy with how it looks now after making some changes.
|I was never happy with the big spacer blocks or the four patch block that I had subbed. Then one night just as I was drifting off to sleep it came to me: Shoo Fly! What would be more appropriate for a Front Porch than a Shoo Fly block? |
|I had to go back and fill the baskets with flowers--no empty baskets on my Front Porch! |
|I felt the applique boat in the pattern looked a little lost in that big space, so I pieced a boat to about the same block size and added spacers on either side. |
|I |stole borrowed Lori's idea to add my initials and a 16 for the year the quilt was made.
|This quilt is enormous. I've got it pinned up above my design wall and it still drags on the floor. I'm really looking forward to quilting it--I think it will be lots of fun to just doodle on. Thanks for the fun sew along, Lori! |
