CARLI'S QUILT

Sometimes boredom can work in your favour. This last couple of weeks my daughter's boyfriend was out of town and she found herself facing some loooong days with nothing much to do. I suggested she find her pile of quilt blocks and work on them  : )
I had been teaching a beginner class at the shop and she asked if she could come and hang out and work on her quilt. After a couple of days she had the top done!

We ventured out for a photo shoot but the wind wasn't cooperating


 She used two lines of fabric in this-- one of them being 'Textures' by Angela Walters and I can't remember the other one. After piecing this, she's a pro at sashing. I may have to wait for her boyfriend to leave town again before I suggest she start quilting it           : )



It finished at about 64 x 80 ish

There is a Quilting Gallery blog hop starting on November 21st. Come back for a chance at a give-away : )

It's beautiful! I love the block and the look...I'm sure she's glad to have completed it and it probably helped to keep her mind busy.
