Finally, all of the setting pinwheels and triangles are finished and stitched to Butterscotch Baskets.
I hung the quilt up on the outside railing, held securely with my copy of War and Peace and Pride and Prejudice. When I bought War and Peace at a garage sale years ago, I was sure that I would curl up with it on a snowy winter day......NOT. All I do is dust it off occasionally. Now Pride and Prejudice is another story, literally, and one of my all time favorites. I'd like to cuddle under this quilt with Mr. Darcy! (Did I really say that?) I mean I would like to cuddle up under this quilt while I read about Mr. Darcy.
This quilt and I had a minor skirmish.....to flange or not to flange. I decided to remove the flanges from the setting triangles because, no matter which way I pressed them, I was losing the points on the star blocks or the points on the pinwheels. I didn't want this quilt to be pointless!
I've sketched out my borders now that I have an absolute measurement. At this point, the quilt is 67-1/2" x 74-1/2". It's a nice size that is going to get bigger! I'll find out today or tomorrow if my border idea is going to look good. So today, I'll be bordering on...............

You crack me up. How can any quilt worthy of snuggling under with Mr. Darcy be pointless? ;DReplyDelete

I love Pride and Prejudice too. It's one of very few books/films that I can re-read or re-watch over and over again. In fact, I watched the film just yesterday.ReplyDelete
Love the colors in your quilt. I'm inspired to use them in the 2013 Civil War BOM. Thanks for sharing photos.ReplyDelete
That is beautiful. I love the creative way you took your pictures. I wish I was that creative. That one is something to be proud of.ReplyDelete
