A Finished Top!

Remember the Wagon Wheels blocks I made a couple of weeks ago in a Sandy Klop class? I decided 4 would be enough what with sashing, a first border, a piano keys second border and another plain border. (I'm loving that red!) This finished 44" square and is the perfect size for the wall quilt rack in my foyer. AND, since this week commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, the Civil War reproduction fabrics I used are appropriate. I was able to show this top to my Civil War-buff husband on Father's Day, promising him I would finish quilting it within a couple of weeks. 

Here's the quilt I just hung in my foyer rack: the block exchange I did with my quilting group, the Calendar Girls, at the end of last year. Really gets me in the spirit for the 4th of July!

Did you post your week's efforts on Judy's Design Wall Monday?

Yes!! Nice job. I love the 4th of July quilt. I need to work on theme quilts, would love to have one for every season but I am too busy just trying to keep up with the projects I start. I am still on my goal to finish several before I start new ones for the rest of the year!! I am having quilt group withdrawls with Spring Chicks being cancelled and Applique society postponed to August.

Your block exchange quilt is very nice, and just in time for the 4th of July!
