Neighborhood Quilt

I made the most of my time today….. During Kaitlyn’s track meet I handstitched the binding on a quilt between events.  It was a good thing to get done plus it was an excuse to go to the car with the cool, breezy conditions!

The pattern is from Elizabeth Hartman's Modern Patchwork, the pattern is called Neighborhood.  Here is a pillow from the pattern on the Oh Fransson website.

Here is my quilt:

Meredith takes care of picking out the quilting pattern for the longarm quilter, I love the one she chose.  It doesn’t take away from the houses, just enhances them.

This one I finished during one of the snowstorms in January, it was so nice to complete it as it had been an UFO for several months.

  1. That is a very beautiful quilt. I love the wavy quilting lines.

    And the father/daughter golf shirts are great. I bet it does bring back fond memories.

  3. That's a great quilt. Lately, I've been looking more at modern quilts and I can't decide if I like them better than traditional quilts. I really should make one to find out!
