Last spring I gathered a jelly roll of “Nicey Jane”, a few stash fabrics, and lots of Kona “Bluebell” to make a queen sized quilt for our bedroom.
I designed it on EQ7. Since I hate to quilt huge quilts, I planned it to be made in two pieces and put together when nearly finished. I got the first half of it together, then ran out of Bluebell. While waiting for more to arrive, I guess summer intervened and this went to the back burner. Way back. I put it on my March “Getting it Done” list, so I dug it out to finish.
So hard to figure out what you were doing on a stone cold quilt! I had to remake a couple of blocks, but they’re all together now, so I just have to add the borders. I am not completely happy about the borders. They are all cut, and they will look nice with my green bed. Probably they will be fine.
Here’s the view from my studio this morning. It’s very beautiful, but it’s time for spring. Birds keep stopping by my dogwood tree. I think they are looking for nesting sites. It would be nice to sew with a family outside my window.
I’m linking up with Design Wall Monday on Patchwork Times.

Valerie, Thanks for your post. I have been working on lots of old tops this year, and frequently wonder ‘who was the woman that started this?!’ ;D
Your quilt looks wonderful. Please post on the two piece quilting/attaching part when you get there. I;m curious how that works.

Those are some lovely colors you’re using Valerie! Your quilt will be really pretty, hope you’ll be able to finish it by the end of the month! 🙂

Love the colors in this quilt! I know what you mean about picking up stone cold projects, although I definitely find it easier to do with quilting than with knitting!
