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.
