One of the first swaps/challenges we did for HMQG was a row robin. Each of us started a row and then passed the quilt around the guild for members to make a coordinating row.
My row is the top, then we have Fi, Sean, Bry, Liz, Amy, Jen and Beth — with a little Coco mixed in!
I asked for red and aqua star/pinwheel blocks and some kind of symmetry in the row.
I love what people came up with!
It had been so long since I’d pulled out the rows that I had almost forgotten who did which row, so I asked Pam to quilt our names into it! Do you see Amy?
As always, Pam did an incredible job on the quilting. I asked her to do these cool hook flowers that she did on a quilt for Patty for her market booth.
We backed it in a grey she had on hand and she quilted it with a really subtle light grey thread. She also used a wool batting, so the quilting really pops!
Most of the binding is the red bias stripe from April Showers, but I also tossed in a corner of aqua pindots — also a Bonnie & Camille!
It’s kind of like candy!
This quilt ended up really narrow and long — about 70″ x 120″ so I think it will be perfect for sharing on the couch.
So glad one of my oldest WIPs is done — I can’t wait to use it!
Linking to Finish it Up Friday!
