Framed Floral Quilt for do. Good Stitches ::A Finished Quilt::


DGS

I finally finished the March quilt for the Haven Circle of do. Good Stitches this weekend, but it's been so gloomy I put off taking pictures.  Today was not much brighter, but I want to get this in the mail this morning!

My beemates made blocks with floral centers following this tutorial in springy, bright colors.  I worried about the cohesiveness when I had the blocks together and also about the size.  I hemmed and hawed over borders and finally decided on sashing and cornerstones.

I thought the Lizzy House catnip print was just enough contrast to the low volume to be seen without being overbearing.  I had already planned to bind it in yellow and luckily I had enough extra for the cornerstones. The cornerstones are 2.5" squares and the sashing strips are 2.5 x 12.5."

I quilted this one pretty simply with a curvy stitch on the diagonals.  I used the eco green batting from Quilter's Dream again and it is just such a cozy feel with light quilting.

This one will be mailed to our charity in Austin, TX later today.  Thanks to all my hivemates for the wonderful blocks!
