French Vintage is FINISHED!
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 80.
This quilt finished at 62" x 62" and has approximately 2,634 pieces.
I think I say this a lot, but it is definitely true this time, this quilt looks prettier in person. The outer blocks aren't as dark as they come across in the picture.
I really like the red and gray checkerboard for the outer border.
This is one of those quilts that takes a few minutes of studying before you take it all in.
Here's a review of the blocks:
I could not be happier with this project. It was fun to piece and I enjoyed watching it come together on my design wall. From the response this pattern has received, I'm guessing I'll be seeing a lot of these quilts on other blogs.
Well, now that French Vintage is all done it's time for the next project, a project that's close to my hearT, and I'll give you a hint, it doesn't start with the letter "B", it starts with the letter
The clock's ticking, are you getting ready to work on your March Schnibbles too? I can hardly wait to see the parade, I hope you're in it!

Beautiful!!! Will it have borders other than the checkerboard? Joe will be thrilled when he sees this.ReplyDelete
Beautiful as usual, Thelma.ReplyDelete
Beautiful - simply beautiful. I love how you always give us the approximate number of pieces. Eee gads, I wonder if we knew how many pieces were involved, if we'd ever start a quilt. It's better to just dive in and worry about the number of pieces later!ReplyDelete
