I finally finished my "Baraboo" quilt. It is named after a city in central Wisconsin.
The Baraboo Chamber of Commerce states; "Baraboo is a charming small town in Wisconsin known for its colorful circus history, Devil's Lake State Park and a historic downtown square."
It has the Circus World Museum and was the wintering spot for Ringling Bros. (I think). Correct me if I'm wrong.
Anyway, it seemed like a good name because of the bright intense colors in this quilt.
It's hard to see the turquoise dots in the border that I made circles to match in the body of the quilt so here is a picture.
I've been quilting this in my living room and the oranges just pop out at me when I walk through. Not in a good way though, it definitely doesn't go with the rest of the décor. I got out this needlepoint picture that is a good companion to the quilt.
I'm not sure who is going to get this quilt. But, I'm glad it's done because it has been waiting it's turn for quite a while now.
|I also finished this quilt that I have wrapped around my settee.|
Wouldn't it be fun to have it upholstered in this quilt?
I had it machine quilted earlier this year but never got the binding sewn on till now.It is from Temecula Quilt Co. and is called Beyond Baskets. It has wonderful reproduction fabrics in it.
It won't take long. I've already sewn around the individual blocks by machine and now I'm big stitching around the designs. It's almost like doing embroidery.
