Finished up this quilt top late last night. Again, this was made from a 2½” strip swap of 1930’s prints. It’s a great group of swappers – we do a lot with Civil War repros and 1930’s.
The Row By Row quilt was featured in the February 2011 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine (p. 84). I deviated from the pattern for my borders. I chose to do a triple border – snow white, blue, and then another snow white border.
My design wall is approx. 71” x 79” to give you a little idea of the size.
I saw a fantastic idea for how I want to quilt the borders on Quilt Out Loud (July ‘11 episode) last night. They were doing a book review of a book on applique, and when they showed the quilt – I just knew I had found an idea for the borders on this quilt. It consists of (modified) Baptist Fan patterns – but only in the borders.
