Not a lot of piecing going on. I did get 48 of block A sewn together for Ashcombe #3. I want to get the block Bs put together this week. But more importantly I was able to get the quilt for hire done before its owner heads off for Hawaii. 

The quilt pattern is Grandmother's Choice. The quilter designed the border. I think this pattern was popular about 10 years ago. Lots of quilters around here made one of these. Here is a picture of the full sized quilt:

This is a shot of the border and it's quilting. I wanted a background fill that wasn't too tight and full. 

I did stitch in the ditch for the pieced blocks and a free motion flower in the plain blocks. Sort of a folk art feel. I like how it turned out but most importantly the quilter loved how I quilted it. 

I am in Arizona right now. My niece was married last night. A good time was had by all. I am looking forward to getting home tomorrow and getting back to quilting. Hope you have a great week bustin' your stash.

Hope you have a great week QFF*!

Remember, we do this for fun..


  1. The quilting on that quilt is just perfect. I have that pieced pattern on my list of ones I'd like to make.

    Were you at Christy's wedding? A friend of mine was at her Granddaughter's wedding last night. Might be a small world.

  2. Whoops, I meant Mindy's wedding (Christie is her Mom).
