Yoiks! How can it already be time for an end-of -the-month link-up???
|Fortunately my Patches of Blue Quilt Along quilt is completed. At the very beginning, I had decided I would forego the pieced border, but in the end I had to do it. I am really happy that I took the time (and used up some more fabric!) to add the zigzag border.|
|After the quilting was complete, I went back and added some dots to the applique flowers. I just thought they needed a little more "something". I also finally remembered to add some beaks and eyes to the birds--almost over looked that!|
|The oak leaf and reel block is my favorite from the Patches of Blue book. I had to shrink the pattern 80 percent to fit in the space where the sleigh would have been placed. Someday I want to make an entire quilt using this block--I love it!|
I have a small collection of saved Reel Patterns, but the one that's been on my bucket list forever is the Fons and Porter Oak Leaf quilt. My friend Paula mentioned that she has it on her list too--maybe it's time to do this one!
|Even though I didn't put the sleigh on my quilt, I had to use this cute label from my Laundry Basket Frivol tin.|
