Finished For Friday, Monet's Wedding Ring Top


This was actually to "flimsie" stage before Friday! It's from Judy Martin's book "Scraps".
There are two extra borders in addition to the original, a three inch white strip and the three-piece blocks left over from the nine patches that sewed up nicely into a finishing border and brought the size to 63". The white on white for the background was an extra purchase but the remainder of the fabrics came from stash. Too late I realized that I had some lovely WOW already in stash, but fortunately this was $2.50/yd on sale so yes of course I bought the rest of the bolt, there may even be enough for the backing. A colored binding would be nice, it may have to be scrappy, I don't know that there is sufficient of any one of the colored fabrics.
I really love this quilt it's so sweet and old fashioned girly-looking it delights my eyes! It would be a lovely baby girl quilt for my first GD-if any of my sons ever produces a girl! Meantime it goes on the bottom of the growing stack for LA'ing. I think I will feather it.
Hostess for Finished For Friday can be found at Litandlaundry.

Roslyn, this quilt is absolutely beautiful. I love the soft sweet colors and you are right it would be perfect for a little girl.

This one really reminds me of one my grandma would have made.
I missed your post about the shredder for some reason. My solution is to tear everything up except the self addressed stamped envelope, stuff it all back into the envelope and mail it back to them. If everyone would do that think of the cost to them paying for all of those self addressed envelopes of junk. Maybe just maybe they would think twice before mailing out their junk. Probably not, but I still get a perverted pleasure from doing it:)
