I've been following this quiltalong with Lori at Humble Quilts. The pattern is Front Porch by Jan Patek. I think we started last June. Not bad!
See some other interpretations on Lori's blog here.
The deadlines really help keep me motivated. Today was the day we were set to share our finished tops, so TODAY I put my borders on! I had originally thought to use some of the sunflower fabric for the wide border, but in the end, it felt too formal, and I liked the red better.
The little bluebird still needs an eye:
Now the question is - how to quilt it??? It is very wavy and loosey goosey in places. It didn't go together smoothly at all. I may just take my chances and do something very utilitarian on the machine.
Thanks Lori for another great sew-along!
Happy New Year one and all!
