Faith

There's nothing like an exhibition deadline to make me hurry up and finish a quilt.  



This one all started when I saw an offcut of the beautiful Stone Flower centre in the remnant bin at my local quilt shop.  I knew I had to take it home and and turn it into something pretty. 


There's always a good selection of medallion quilts in Kaffe Fassett's books so I perused my little library and came across the Blue Square Dance quilt in Quilts in the Cotswolds.  


I didn't fancy making the final border on the Blue Square Dance quilt, so I turned the page and used the border from the Flowery Jar pattern instead.  


The final touch was a great Kaffe Fassett print for the binding that incorporated all of the colours used in the quilt - Chevron Stripe in Blue. 


I've called it Faith because:

a. I love George Michael's music

b. You've got to have faith to build an impactful quilt.



I had it custom quilted by Sue B from Busy Bee Quilt Shop and I'm really pleased with it. 




Finished size 74" x 74".

This quilt turned out great and it all started with a small piece from the remnant bin. Another lovely to display at the quilt show!

It's a beautiful finish. I can see why you're so pleased with the quilting, too. And you made your deadline?

A stunning quilt Wendy. I love the addition of that exciting green and the border you decided to go with rather than the original in the book.
