And now that blogger is back up and running, it's Blogger's Quilt Festival time!
This is Courtney's quilt. I originally blogged about it here.
Long post short, she's my precious college roommate who deserves a happy quilt!
It was quite a long process from the day she emailed that she liked this fabric,
to the day she came back to the states on furlough and I could give her the final product.
I'm not used to having to pay this much attention to detail when piecing, so it took a bit of work to figure it all out without a pattern or anything. I designed it to mimic the quilt Jane Austen made seen here.
I threw in some Kona solids to balance things out a bit, sashed and bordered it in Kona white, and pieced the back with the left-overs. It measures to about a twin size.
I always love giving quilts to people that mean so much to me, but I love that this one was a big surprise!
Thanks for stopping by! Have fun checking out all the other great quilts!
ETA: I found this tutorial a few days ago and this is exactly how I did it minus making the template: I bought mine at Joanns!
