Row x Row - Quilted and Bound





Quilters! I hope you can see all these 4 photos. This is a Row x Row that a group of us made for Auction for Golden Halo Foundation. I showed you bits of it along the way, and Row x Rows never look great until they are finished, and let me tell you -- this one is absolutely gorgeous, thanks to the fantastic machine quilting by our friend Anita Allen, of Prairie Creations. These photos do not show the quilting well enough, so I will post another photo when lighting is better.

We all just added bits of our own fabric along the way - even the borders were in somebody's stash.

Our original plan was to add sashing between each row, but we received more rows than expected, and it started to get too long, so some of the rows had to be combined. The finished project took our breath away -- it is so beautiful!

You're right -- it looks spectacular once it's all together. I love that row with all the stars scattered over it! The fact that it's not the usual row by row makes it really special. You can all be proud!

Beautiful quilt! I've been resisting the books on Hamilton Books. I did my own binge buying of books on E-Bay recently and that's keeping me happy.

What a beautiful row by row quilt. I don't think it would have been any better if each block and row as planned! A great compliment to your group! Hugs, Finn
