Grandmother’s Choice Quilt Top

Today I finished the Grandmother’s Choice Quilt top! 🙂

This has been a great project and I want to thank Barbara Brackman for her Grandmother’s Choice blog.  Every Saturday morning for a year she gave us an awesome quilt block and some very interesting history on the women’s suffragette movement.  I will miss those Saturday morning posts!

Here is my Grandmother’s Choice Quilt:

Grandmother's-Choice-FinishI had planned on an inner border and outer border but I like it just as it is.  With all the bright fabrics it is pretty wild and crazy – containing them in one fabric seemed to settle the quilt down and make it more palatable (can a quilt be palatable?).  So I nixed the borders; I’ll use that fabric on the back.

I was very pleased with the way the center block became a focal point for the quilt.  It is the only block in which I used the purple dragon fly fabric as the background.

New quilt projects are looming on the horizon, but my next goal is to finish the Case of the Secret Garden Inkling Quilt. All the blocks have been stitched (by hand!) and I’m ready to start putting this puppy together!

Have a great week, y’all!

  1. I wasn’t sure when you said you were going to use the dragonfly fabric for sashing , but it turned out beautiful! I think it’s perfect like it is.
