WiP Wednesday

Love LIVES Here.  The Love Lives Here quilt top is finally all pieced.  Of course my sewing machine started fritzing out with the final two blocks last night.  But, little berNina didn’t give up, and neither did I!  I’m so proud to have all of these blocks pieced because this is the quilt that started this journey.  I remember showing my grandmother this pattern and she said, “Oh, honey.”  Now, I understand why.  240 flying geese later, I don’t think I’ll make another one for a while.  My seams don’t all match up, and I don’t know how the final piecing of the rows will line up, but I do know that this quilt will always be special.  Who knows when I’ll finally quilt this monster, because I don’t know where I can baste it.

Now for some pictures! (Sorry for the lighting, I finished pretty late last night.)

Love Lives Here

This quilt is 30 blocks of the Cathedral Window block that was design by Lee over at Freshly Pieced.  Which makes today’s WiP Wednesday even more fun because I’m linking up to her blog!  I truly love the quilting blogosphere and all the resources that are out there!  It should be 60″ x 72″ when finished – perfect for a large snugglin’ quilt.  I still haven’t decided how I want to quilt the top, but I want to wait until I’m a little more confident with my quilting skills so that I can really make this special.

Here are some of my favorite blocks:

I simply adore the birdies.

Thanks for stopping by, friends.  Happy quilting and an even happier WiP Wednesday!

  1. Congrats, Ashley! Sew glad to see that you are having fun with this and persevering! The blocks look great…. Don’t be critical of your work. Those quilt police are strictly imaginary!

    • Hey, Melanie. I made half blocks for two of them, but I realized I hadn’t taken the seam allowance for the four square in the middle. For the other four, I made a block and then cut it in half. Of course, I love knowing another blogger 🙂
