Sweet Romance

I made two of these and sadly they are both still flimsies. My daughter fell in love with this line of fabric, Sweet Romance from Moda, so I made two quilts. Well, they are actually still flimsies but soon they will both be real quilts.

I’ve been doing a lot of piecing recently however I need to start thinking about doing some actual quilting. That flimsy pile is growing again – two steps forward and four back. ACK!!! LOL

EDIT: This quilt has been a flimsy for a couple of years. I didn't just finish this one!

I think you are like a lot of us. We love to piece the quilting part is almost an afterthought. But it ain't a quilt til it's been QUILTED!! Good luck with your flimsies. I love the Sweet Romance@!

I think it's great, just the same. You'll get them quilted . . . I'm just sure of it.

That is so pretty Darlene. I had to chuckle, because I used the same stripe for the inner border of my latest flimsy.

Such a sweet quilt, no wonder your daughter likes it. I love how your mini 9 patch turned out, I find the brown border very fitting. Well I like brown anyway, so...
Take care.

I must say I really enjoy visiting your blog. You'r quilts are so beautiful. The one to your daughter and the one with brown boarder are juste stunning!

Hi Darlene, What a lovely quilt. I'm sure we haven't had that range of fabrics in Australia, they are gorgeous. There are so many we don't get here. :'(

That's so pretty Darlene - can't wait to see it all quilted up. I can't get over how much piecing you've been doing and all such pretty fabrics as well!

Hugs
