This is the final time that I will see many of you here, as Maggie’s First Dance is almost finished. I hope you all had so much fun and enjoyed the process! It sure has been a lot of fun for me as featured blogger to get to know so many new people!
I have been working like mad to get my version done on time! I of course got distracted by other projects and had to really work my fingers to the bone these last few days to get it done….that’s what you get for procrastinating 🙂
Anyway, here is a little recap of photos I took along the way….being on a fabric diet meant I had to use what was already in my stash so these were my fabric choices:You’ll notice that some of those fabrics never did make it into the quilt, and others were added instead. Here are some pictures of the blocks in progress:
Here are some of the blocks:Some pics of the quilt while in the final stages ( with helpers underfoot of course!)
And some detail pictures, including a LABEL! ( I have been VERY bad about adding labels to my quilts in the last few years~ this one got one!)
Because I quilted my blocks as I went along, I changed the borders just to make it easier on myself.So I quilted each of the blocks individually and then sewed the red and floral border together and quilted that. The corner blocks are different too, because I really wanted to bring back some more colors in those. I am very happy with how it turned out! The seams don’t all match up, and some of my star points got lopped off, but when I look at my quilt it makes me happy and that is all that counts, right?!
And here is the final quilt!
