What in the world do those two have to do with each other? They are two projects that I recently finished for Barb from The Quilted B.
First is this pretty quilt. The fabric in this quilt is Penelope by Lakehouse and it is so beautiful.
The border on this quilt was the trickiest I have ever done. I had to match the gingham on all four sides! It was not easy but so worth the effort in the result that it gives.
I pieced the back because well…I just can’t help myself! Something about a pieced back finishes off the quilt better and is more satisfying. It’s like as the quilt hangs on the wall it has a secret and only I know what it is.
When I get this one back I think it will hang in my future dining room. (still staying positive over here that my house will sell)
I also made this cute little runner. Isn’t it so perfect for fall?
As always, Barb has these both in kit form if you would like to make one of your own. Just look on her website or send her an e-mail.
