Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Victoria’s Rose

Over the next week or so I’m going to write a bit about each of the quilts I’ve finished.  First up is Victoria’s Rose.

This quilt was started in 2007.  My notes say I finished the top August 1st 2007.  Most of the fabric I purchased at one of the bigger quilt shows here in Kansas City.   I think I purchased two 5 yard bundles.  There was a stripe fabric and a small bright blue calico.  Those fabrics are  still in my stash.

I remember buying the background fabric on a combination shop hop to St Louis and visit to my great-nephew when he was about 6 weeks old.  Additionally I ordered more of the larger print on line for the border.

The pattern is Victoria’s Rose.

I quilted the center on the long arm at Rocking Chair Quilts, then did the borders on my machine here at  home. I just don’t have the control yet to make smooth flowing lines I needed for the borders.

I finished the quilt on June 12th.
