Honour Quilt - Top...

Yesterday morning I wandered into the sewing room, looked at the Honour Quilt block that was half done sitting by the machine and came to the conclusion that I wasn't going to enjoy making the remaining sampler blocks...pinning the so far completed sampler blocks on the design wall...taking stock of whether or not I could achieve the colour look I wanted with what was there...it was time to move on...and so after lunch I started...and by the end of the day...
My version of the Kilmore Quilters Honour Quilt Challenge...not what the Challenge Setter designed but she knows me well enough not to be at all surprised by that...it does what I wanted it to do and is still in the spirit of the Challenge...now to actually quilt it...but I don't want to send the shockwaves into the stratosphere and get too much done in one weekend...

Happy Stitching...

know how you feel, sometimes you just need to just get it finished at the stage it is at.
It is a beautiful quilt top.

Lovely top, I think it looks fine just the way it is, and I love your design modification.

The quilt looks great, Annette :-)
Like you I had a project that I had come to a complete 'stand still'...yesterday I forced myself to do some work on it and I'm pleased to say, it's almost finished...only a cushion mind you, but a gift for a special lady...should be able to post it tomorrow. Phew!

You know finished is always better. I like the look of your quilt and if we all did it exactly the same it would be a sad world!I left off the last border as mine got so huge but like you say it is all in the spirit of the challenge. Now get quilting.LOL

Finished is always good. Am quite sure your challenge setter thinks you have done a wonderful job and have achieved the look you wanted. Well done. Am impressed!

Katherine said...

Love it and yes I understand that feeling. Been bogged down knitting with this horrid coloured yarn and I have almost finished. one inch to go and then it is out of here! Your version looks lovely and will look forward to seeing it quilted one day.

well done on deciding to be done with it your way! Who needs to waste craft time on doing something you don't enjoy? All in order to end up with something you don't really like! Bit daft really- though of course we've all done that ;) Like what you've done, and very glad it works for you too :)

I love that you stopped where you are happy. Your quilt looks great in the photo. :)
