Finally!! After two years of on and off sewing I can happily say I am done with my Simple Folk Quilt. Yea!! I have enjoyed the process and have especially appreciated all the words of encouragement from my online quilting friends. Most of this was sewn with my HQAL friends. You all are so SWEET and truly make my day!❤️❤️. So… without any further introductions or waiting …. Here it is!—
I have been anxiously awaiting this photo shoot so if you don’t want to be overloaded with quilting eye candy, now is the time to hit the back button. But if you are up for a nice show and tell, keep on scrolling and let’s enjoy the feast for the eye!
Ah! Those reverse appliqué hearts were fun:)
Appliqué Flowers make me smile. :). It is hard to believe that it wasn’t that long ago when a needle turned appliqué project seemed overwhelming. Now I just LOVE it!
The actual long arm quilting took forever too. Those little pebbles and feathers never seemed to end.
The borders were a little trickier than the flowers in the center. Choosing the color scheme of a darker border was a hard decision as well. Some of the appliqué didn’t “pop” as much as the center, but that was the point
The darker borders pushed the attention to the middle section. I really like it.
What a journey! After all of that work, it is hard to not just sit back and stare….
Do you do that? I bet you do. Here is how it goes for me —. I finish a project and then it becomes my favorite project for the next little bit until the next “masterpiece”. I lay it out and just sit and look at it for a bit. Then I place it here or there and show it to my family and friends like you.
I like the idea of snuggling under my new quilt as the weather is getting colder. I think it’s new home is right here in the couch:)
Well- we have arrived at the end. I must acknowledge the amazing Sarah Fielke who wrote and designed this pattern. I enjoyed her Quilt Along and recommend it highly. You can join one of her Block of the Month programs here.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!
