Courthouse Quilt Complete

I finally finished the baby-sized courthouse quilt I’ve been working on.  I saw the pattern in the last issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.  I’ve never made a quilt with so many pieces before and I’m so happy with the end result.  With all the narrow strips and 1/2 inch seams inside, this quilt has a lot of fabric in it and I can tell when I feel it that it’s thicker than quilts I’ve made before.  This design is definitely a keeper.

I forgot to take a before picture, but with some free-motion quilting, this baby wrinkled up nicely in the dryer.  I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to part with it!

  2. Oh Linda… it is SO, SO, SO, so very beautiful! You did an awesome job too! BTW… I like my quilts to wrinkle too! It’s always so exciting to open the drier door the first time and see what magic has happened to a quilt. I’m soooo with you!

  4. That is soooo perfect. How could you give that away???? I love it. You are sooo talented. Maybe we should look into finding houses close to each other, I think I have a lot to learn from you. Why don’t you think about moving to Germany?? Pretty please? 😉

  5. A keeper for sure! You definitely have an eye for color and style as is proven by this beautiful quilt.
    I’ll have to track down the pattern in my spare time — yours is so inspirational!

  6. It is gorgeous! I love the varying shades of pink and then the darker greens. Wow. Why did it have 1/2″ seams I wonder? And the strips finished at 1/2″ then? Anyway, it is beautiful – definitely worth keeping and repeating!

  7. Linda,

    Can we use this photo as a beautiful example of this pattern on the blog next week? Courthouse/ log cabin will be our block-along post next Friday. As always, we’ll link back to your blog. Let me know.

    Thanks,

    Kristin
