I just love these farmer's wife's quilts, they are amazing blocks and great stories behind them. Combine that with some fabulous Denyse Schmidt prints and you've got Suz from Patchwork n Play's Sunnybrook Farm Quilt! Gorgeous! I love her combination of prints and I think her use of the polka dot as the background print is fabulous! After you read her story make sure to see Patchwork n Play, her tutorials and a fun to-do list!
Time and the weather have conspired somewhat against me this week.....
But I really wanted to share my 'finish' for March!
(That's three quilts finished in three months!)
So inside photos will have to do...
My FW quilt, AKA "Sunnybrook Farm" is done!
I stippled all around each of the 48 blocks.....
Denysely densely, as is my method!
|The back folded over to the front|
This is the biggest quilt I've ever quilted myself...
57 " by 72 "
The binding is a pretty DS print...
which contrasts nicely with both the sunny back and the spotty front!
The blocks all stand out proudly from the background, which is the effect I was
I think it let's all the blocks 'shine'!
I know my Mum would have loved this quilt....
Well, that's not quite true.....
My Mum loved EVERYTHING I made!
