Jessie's Quilt Part 1

Miss Hallie decided to help with the photography today, thanks Hal!

Well, I got my layer cake quilt back from the quilter and I am so thrilled with the job she did!!  I had her quilt each block individually and then do border work.  I could not be more pleased with how it came out!  It is for my niece to celebrate her high school graduation.  I took pics of each individual block to show you too, but since there are 12 I though I would split it into 8 now and the other 4 later.

I thought you might like to see the quilting from the back (where you can actually see how it is quilted) and from the front, how the patterns I chose look on the blocks.  I am especially in love with the basket block.  Actually it was not my favorite block by itself but I LOVE what LTW did with it!  The second block posted I didn't end up liking at all...until it was quilted!  Didn't it turn out well??  I'm pretty sure I said this already but most of the patterns were from the Acanthus butterfly set from One Song Needle Arts (on sale right now!!)Of course I didn't take one of the entire quilt...yet.  I sent it off to QNQ to have the binding done (Can't call her QQ any more so is QNQ ok??).  I will take some overall photos once I have it back.  What's that?  You want to see some of the border?  Well alright then.

You can see, I think, that LTW used varigated pink thread on the back, and just a light pink on the front.

I have more to show you but it will have to wait for another time when I have some more time to write.  I did manage to get a few other things done this weekend too and want to show you that as well.
I hope to be able to put this in Annie's finish your project challenge too!  How was your weekend?

Between you, the block designers and your quilter, you have a beautiful quilt there. I went to a conference over the weekend and since I need to keep my hands busy during lectures I designed a quilt for my LCQAL. I printed the EQ out and now they will all go in the que for piecing. You inspire me to move it up the que.
