I have finished another major project! Yeah! Back in October, I took a class from Marcie Patch. This quilt is called Old Elegance, and you can find the pattern on her website here.
I have been calling this project my "chocolate covered cherries quilt" in reference to my color scheme. Marcie is such a great teacher and I feel as though she is a new friend! I also fell in love with her patterns--they are right up my alley--and I have a pile of them waiting for me to get to them.
Without further ado, here are some pictures:
Obviously, this is the entire quilt top--hanging from my clothesline. As soon as I was done photographing the quilt, I hung out our bedsheets. I can't wait to go to bed tonight! I LOVE the way sheets that have been hung to dry outside smell...
Back to the quilt...
Here is a closeup of the blocks. There are two, the star block and the fourpatch block. All I had left to do on this was to complete a dozen of the stars, and then assemble the top. And I even had the units done, I just had to sew the nine squares together to make the block. It didn't take too much work, but right in the middle of it, I got a horrible headache and ended up in bed for most of Tuesday afternoon. I'm back to normal now.
Now all I have to do is decided how I want it quilted and then send it off. I'm really pleased with how it came out, but the best thing is making a new quilting friend and blog buddy! Thanks Marcie!
