Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying the Holidays! My Dear Daughter BOM Quilt top is done and I wanted to share!
I also wanted to say Thank you to the quilters from all over the world that participated! Of course we had lots of quilters from the US and Canada ~ Woo Hoo! – (I think Texas was the most represented state!) A BIG thank you to all the quilters from down under in Australia, New Zealand… and even Africa… As well as lots of quilters in France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and the UK to name a few!! WOW! Thank You!
If you are wondering what my border fabric is… I found this fabric by Valorie Wells ~ (Quill Ash) at a local quilt shop. It’s perfect!
To replicate my border applique I made a template from freezer paper. After I appliqued the first of four border motifs, I cut some freezer paper to size and ironed it onto the fabric (shiny side down) and traced everything.
Then I peeled it off and used it (with the help of a light box) as a template for placement of the remaining three border motifs.
I over-sized the width of my border by an inch and a half so I could trim/square it up after it’s been quilted. After a lot of thought I decided to hand quilt my quilt. It will take some time of course, and I will definitely share some pics with you when that’s complete!
If you want to make your own Dear Daughter Quilt you can find the pattern HERE IN MY SHOP
