Ohio Collection Together


It took a little figuring and several coping strips but my version of the Ohio Collection quilt is finally together. The final version is 80.5 x90.5 a little larger than the pattern.



This may turn out to be one of my favorite quilts.  I think because it was difficult and is so different from any other quilt I have ever  made. 

                                         
 Once again I would like to thank Karen from Log Cabin Quilter for all the unique patterns she sent for me to include in my quilt.


After all the stress from putting Ohio Collection together I decided I needed something quick and simple to stitch.  When I first started quilting I bought a lot of kits - not so much anymore.  I have had this Shadowbox kit for several years, too many to remember.


Oops, I see I got the two end blocks on the first row reversed.  Why can’t I remember to take the picture before I sew the whole thing together?
Until the next time.
Nancy

  12. What a great layout you designed, Nancy. It's gorgeous! Yes, the digital camera is fast becoming my most used notion in the sewing room. Thanks for sharing. I invite you to link it to WIPs Be Gone for yours has gone into the WTBQ pile. Bet it won't be there for long. Are you going to hand quilt it?

  15. You did it! The blocks are all sewn together and everything looks good. The vibrant blue pulls your eye around the quilt. That and the blocks you chose to add to the quilt. What is your favorite block?
