I finished the quilting on my Garden Sampler this week. Here are a few pictures of my favorite blocks. Needs binding and a hanging sleeve to be done.
I also quilted my Petite Provence quilt. The 2017 Mystery Quilt from Bonnie Hunter. Mine is half size, the same number of pieces, but only 43 inches square. I used a pantograph that I had and the pink paisley material from the stars to bind it. Plus I made a hanging sleeve, for extra credit of course. Happy to get this one done 🙂
I’m working on my entry for PIQF this month, as entries are due 8/29/17. I have the top done, just waiting on the backing fabric to be delivered. I want to do some embellishing after its quilted and of course binding and hanging sleeve. Then there’s photos and forms, all in the next 28 days. No problem, right?
Linking up with Sara for “Can I get a Whoop Whoop” at Confessions of a Fabric Addict today.

Both of these quilts are marvelous. The quilting for the garden embroidery is perfectly feminine and pretty with the stitching. And you made your En Provence half size!!! Wow – I love that! It turned out gorgeous in your colors. I still have tops from Bonnie’s Grand Illusion and Allietare mysteries that need to be quilted up.
Thank you! I had a little trepidation upon starting to quilt the Sampler. So many hours of blissful hand stitching went into that, I didn’t want to mess it up by quilting it badly. I just kept telling myself that I could do it, and that it was going to hang in my home, so no worries about any one judging it. One of the things that I like about Bonnie’s quilts is that the piecing shines, and there really isn’t any room for elaborate quilting. All of my mystery quilts have open Pantos and simple motifs, I think I read that most of hers are quilted likewise.
Your garden sampler quilt is darling – stunning quilting! How cool to make the Provence quilt half size. That had to be intense!
Thanks! I did ask myself a few times if I really had thought it through, but perseverance is my middle name.
Congrats! on completing your En Provence quilt. Mine is still little more than a wish and a prayer! (One block and a bunch of components.)
You have until November to complete it 🙂
