    Let's put all our finished quilts here to admire.

    Just thought we could share our quilts in the one space.

    The top is complete. I made a triangle border instead of what was in the pattern. I have the backing made, but I usually pin in our dining room which is off limits due to ceiling painting going on.

      lovely soft scrappy quilt- quiet use of color

    Thank you for sharing! I am in the process re-doing those pesky pineapple blocks -- again! If the third time isn't the charm, they will be "wonky" pineapples! Trees and roads are under construction for Color My World. Too many competing priorities, too little time.

      Terri, Do you know how to do paper foundation piecing? You won't have to worry about wonky pineapples. HelenW

    Finished piecing checkerboards and sashing. I’m very pleased with it so far. The sections blend together very well, although the colors have always photographed stronger than they actually are. I am going to finish the borders in the manner of Barbara Black’s multi-bordered quilt. I really like her finish of continued scrappiness and pattern. Looking forward to the quilting...should be lots of fun!

    Dee, thank you so very much for your lessons, support, and inspiration. You are an excellent teacher, and I have learned so many new things in this Long Time Gone quilt along.

      My finished top - This has been both fun and challenging - and I still have scraps! I am putting orphan blocks from my practicing into the backing - it's ready to go to the long-armer for quilting as soon as I get the top free of stray threads... Photo has lost some of the bright color of the actual top - but this shows I finished it!

          My top is quilted but not yet bound. I looked at other Jen Kingwell quilt patterns for ideas for the floral border. I love how the flowers grow up out of the bottom border. I did hand appliqué (my new passion). I also sashed all around the outside of the block sections to set the center off from the border. I decided I wanted the quilting to blend in so decided not to quilt on the prints unless I had to. Most of my backgrounds are gray tones. Because I ironed most of my seams open I could not stitch in the ditch so I quilted about 1/8" away- looks pretty good! I got ideas for quilting online- check out Karen Marchetti (sp?) TQS guest years back. She has good photos of LTG she quilted. I have a Sweet 16 sit down machine and just did one block at a time so it wasn't so daunting. 8" borders makes the quilt finish at 80x80".

            Peg, What a beautiful quilt you have made. I love the applique border. I am always drawn to quilts that have both applique and pieced blocks in them. Thank for sharing your sharing about the quilting. I have just started doing my quilts using Quilting In Sections techniques from Marti Michelle's
            book Machine Quilt In Sections. I have a regular domestic machine, but like you said if you take in
            in small parts it is not do daunting. HelenW

            I love your quilt! The appliqué border is wonderful and complements the pieced center perfectly. Thank you for sharing.

          Thanks Dee
          Just finished it up. I learned a new pinning method, how to make a pineapple block and how to draw and make the Peaky and Spike triangles while working on this quilt. The corner were a huge challenge and I am sure there is an easier way of making them than I did. Now to clean up my sewing room so I can get going on my next adventure in Quilting.
