Another finish!

So, we are off visiting my parents, but I did manage to get one more thing done before we left--

 Vin du Jour is now a completely finished quilt!

This turned out so well and is destined to hang on the wall of my office this fall.  It measures 48 by 48 (or so) and will fill the wall nicely.

The quilting on this turned out so well.  Diane did a beautiful job, as usual. It was a good decision to take it to her.  This is a quilting design called Simple Feather, which I use a lot, and is quilted in a pale yellow thread. Here's some detail:

Loving how this turned out!

On a different topic, have you all heard about the Row by Row Experience shop hop? It's a "hop" that involves 1250 shops, each of which has a free pattern for one row of a row quilt. While we are travelling we are stopping at several quilt shops, and many of them are participating. Go HERE for more information. At the very least, the website is a really good list of quilt shops across the US (which is how I originally found out about it). And I did remember to bring those white and red 4 patches to look for some coordinating fabric, so I have a mission in each shop.  No way we're getting to all 1250 though.

Have a good and relaxing weekend everyone!

If I have some Internet access, I will link up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts again.


  1. Beautiful wall hanging. Your office will look gorgeous with this on the wall!

  2. A beauty. It will warm up your office nicely. A little bit of home...

  3. Now that's a finish to be proud of! It's a beauty for sure!

  4. The wall hanging is beautiful and will surely add warmth and conversation in the office. Thanks for the link to the shophop.

  5. Your quilt is beautiful. The pattern is stunning, and the Simple Feather with light yellow thread was an excellent choice. Bummer, there are no NM hops participating in the hop.

  6. Gorgeous fabrics = gorgeous result! Well done!
