Happy National/Worldwide Quilting Day



Happy National and Worldwide Quilting Day! Of course I had to celebrate by working on a quilt!


My row-along rows are finally out of their project box and sewn together.


I love each and every row, but I do believe the tulips are my favorite (with the baskets and houses following close behind).


Every bit and piece of this quilt came from my scrap bins--so I guess this is technically a "free quilt." I used five fabric collections by Bonnie & Camille for Moda--Ruby, Bliss, Vintage Modern, Marmalade, and Happy Go Lucky. The background is Moda Bella Bleached White 9900-97.



It's folded up and ready for the scrappy border...thanks Lori for designing such a fun project!

Thanks so much for stopping by...and I hope you get to celebrate today with some quilting!

This is incredible, the rows were great by themselves but are absolutely stunning as a put together quilt.

What a great way to spend the day! I am partial to the tulips also and I love the fact that you made the quilt using scraps.

You have nice scraps! Mine are yucky! But then everyone elses' scraps always look better than your own. LOL!

Wonderful Sherri! I hope to have mine sewn together sometime this week! (after I finish my pillow: pictures coming soon)

Even more gorgeous than I hoped it would be! I hope this one gets some special quilting treatment to really make the most of it x

Lynn said...

Your quilt makes me wish I had done this QAL now! But I also love Bonnie & Camille fabric!

OPQuilt said...

Love this!

I love the part also how you took your time to create this quilt--how long have you been working on it. Then it becomes like an old friend, and we can add different scraps as they become available.

Congrats on getting the rows together--

It looks great! I didn't "find" Lori until just a few weeks ago so I missed the row along but I joined her Barn Along which has already been so much fun!
