So when Sinta started her BOM Rehab, and I took stock of the BOMs that I had on hand, Northern Lights was the one that I wanted to finish the most.
Northern Lights is a BOM designed by Marti Michell. I signed up through a quilt shop, collected my monthly blocks and threw them in a project box because I didn't care for the fabric I received, it looked nothing like the fabric in this picture, which I did like.
So with Sinta's encouragement I got the patterns out, selected new fabric and started piecing the blocks.
Here are the blocks, all together.
And here's the finished quilt with the borders.
This quilt looks very different in person than in this picture, between the cloudy skies and the inability of my camera to capture the colors accurately, this quilt looks dull, but believe me, it's not, it's amazing, in a serene and calm sort of way.
I could not be happier with it. Maybe after it's quilted I'll be able to get a better picture, or maybe you'll just have to stop by my house to see it for yourself!
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 93.
The pattern is Northern Lights by Marti Michell.
The majority of the fabric is by French General for Moda, mainly Lumiere de Noel and some Park Avenue by 3 Sisters for Moda.
It finished at 81" x 105" and has approximately 928 pieces.
Next up, my Memories of Provence BOM, it sure would be nice to have that one done by the end of the year!
