This project was nothing but fun. I enjoyed every minute in my sewing room while working on this quilt, I loved the reds and I loved the pattern. I changed my quilt ever so slightly, for the border I made my 9 patches out of the light background fabric and used the tans for the squares. The center stars are more of a controlled scrappy, not a full blown scrappy. Oh, and I added 9 tiny stars to that outer border, a suggestion from a friend.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 120
It finished at 67" x 67"
The pattern is Nantucket by Minick & Simpson
The fabric is Midwinter Reds by Minick & Simpson for Moda (wovens and cottons)
It has approximately 1,187 pieces.
Be on the lookout for more Nantuckets, several quilters are sewing along with me. And it doesn't matter who finishes first or last, we all just need to finish. The quilt it too pretty not to be on your bed, and soon!
I have more Midwinter Reds fabric, this won't be the last quilt you see using that fabric from my sewing room!
