This is another finish thanks to the hand quilting service from Bellwether. This quilt is one from the mini of the month program (2010) at Temecula Quilt Company. It is a Lori Smith (From My Heart to Your Hands) design. I made a little change to the kit because I ran out of the colored fabrics used in the little churn dash blocks (I think they are 3″). I am a pre-washer and the pieces frayed and shrunk. Anyway, I was quite happy with the way the brown Jo Morton fabric worked as the corner blocks. I think I like it better than if the corners had each been a different color. I should have used it for the binding, too, but I had already cut the blue that came with the kit and didn’t feel like digging through the stash for more of the brown.
The striped fabric in the borders really “makes” this quilt. Aside from the brown I added from my stash, I think the fabrics are all from a Bonnie Blue (Marcus) line. Dick Fries had the quilter follow the zig-zag line in the border and it turned out really cute. You can see it better on the back.
