Noah & Matilda

I have been spending my time putting together the blocks from quilts I have worked on over the past two years.


Noah and Matilda has been a top for a few weeks but I couldn’t find a place to take a picture that would show the whole quilt until now.

This quilt is full of so many cute little blocks that I had never seen before.  
I tried to pick some of my favorite blocks and came up with six. 
It was really difficult because I like them all.

 


If you decide to make this quilt I hope you won’t skip the borders.  I know there are a lot of little grapes to stitch but the borders really add so much to the quilt.


The pattern for Noah and Matilda can be found here.

Until the next time.
Nancy

  3. Your quilt is beautiful and the border does add the perfect finishing touch. Your finish might be just what I need to get on with the border, but it's all those grapes. Sorry, I just had to whine a little bit.

  7. It is beautiful!! I bought all the patterns but had so many other applique projects on the go I thought I would be a good, self-controlled girl and not start another. Well, that was a silly notion! Seeing your incredible quilt has me ready to pack up my stuff and head home from work right now to start prepping my first block.

  18. Your Noah&Matilda turned out so impressive and beautiful! I already saw it on Dawn's FB-page, and I like your interpretation of the pattern very, very much. I am still wondering about my colorhues and doubt between using the same red-hue throughout, or to vary with different hues of red....
    I really love the border with all those tiny grapes!!!
