Row By Row – Day 6

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.
