"Sew Me"

Just had to show you how I quilted up my awesome Round Robin that my talented NSQBQ buddies made for me.  You can read about it here in case you missed my post.  I am so in love with this quilt.  It has such special meaning and is filled with so much thought and love. 💝 It's a quilter's quilt for sure.  I call it "SEW ME" because my friends certainly captured me in fabric. It just needs a binding, which will be similar to the two black print inner borders and then I will hang it over my sofa for all to see and admire.











For the backing, I raw edge appliqued the leftover blocks and fabrics onto a length of "Nummers". The quilting will keep them well attached.   The girls even saved me the selvedges so of course they had to get added.  I threw in an orphan snail block to fill up space.  













I can't wait to show off our Round Robins as well as a sampling of our quiltmaking at our first ever NSQBQ quilt show being held as part of Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival, in Amherst, October 13 and 14.  Hope you stop by and say hello. 😉

  9. Oh, Linda, you do us proud! Your RR Quilt came out just magnificent! I can't wait to see it in person next month. Mine is under the needle now, but can never compare to yours! That said, I'm having fun quilting it, and that's what counts most, right? XO
