QJ - Green/Rose Quilt

QUILT JOURNAL - GREEN/ROSE QUILT

Pre-printed panels of Rose Medallions - 4 x 6 SQ
Machine Pieced
Hand Tied
Queen-Size
Started - January 23, 1995
Completed - May 20, 1995

Made for our daughter and her husband -

As you can almost see from the scan -

Their cat likes it, too - ;))



She likes green and I wanted to try out my new basting gun -

So after checking for a one-way layout - I laid the panels side by side -

Trimmed the inner border 1/4" from the Rose Square on each panel -

And sewed the panels together down the center (1/4" seam) -

I used the trimmed inner borders for the top and bottom borders -

And did not miter the borders -

I centered them at the diamond at the center seam -

Attached the binding to the quilt top only -

Basted with the staple gun and hand tied it -

I trimmed the back and batting -

Turned the binding to the back and hand stitched it down -

Won First Place at the County Fair in August 1995

  1. Very pretty! Are they still using it or did you replace it with another in the interim?

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
