Two DOD tops finished

I was fortunate enough to finish two quilt tops in the last week that were designed by Deana.

The first is Americana and the second one is Quilter's Garden.

Thank you Deana. I have loved working on both of these.

Now on to finish Spring :)

Dorine's Spring Row Quilt Assembled

Okay, here it is!
It's really busy, but I  like it!  I had so much fun putting this together.  Thanks Deana for the darling pattern!!  Just have to quilt it now.

Susan: Americana Ready for Borders

Sorry the left edge is slightly snipped off. This was the best picture I could take without a ladder. LOL

  I'm thinking about adding a blue border at the top, too, before I add the last borders.

I am finally finished with my borders. I had a few days off to complete my last rows and I really like the finished product.  It was quite a bit bigger than I thought it would be.  I made the pinwheel's and decided it was too busy so I switched to flying geese.  Thanks for a great design!! Vivian

Americana QAL Complete

This morning I got the final borders on and all seams pressed. I really like how it turned out. It is larger than I had planned, It will fit a double bed instead of being a throw, but it will still work as a throw, and cover well.

The colors aren't very good, as my i-pad and camera both have dead batteries and I used my phone camera. The other side is red and white strips the full length, as shown on the pattern.
I will be using the left over fabric from the blue and the white stars, as well as the same pattern in red. I also have some of the border stars that I will add somewhere too, with the "celebrate" fabric to tie it in.
This has been a very fun project and am glad I joined in. My stash of fat quarters for the project is partially used up, and I probably could do a small wall hanging or something with what I have left over. I will have to think about that one for the future.

I love it!

Americana Quilt sewn together.  I do not have room to add the mountains.   
All it needs is a border.

Susan: Americana Update

I still have a few things to finish (like row 1!) before the borders can go on, but I made a lot of progress in January!

Some lovely rows and blocks made by participants

Here are some wonderful rows and blocks made by your fellow group members ... Pat and Sue.

Hello ladies!

Hello Ladies!  I nearly have the final Americana pattern ready to email but I have had an exhausting day.  Check in tomorrow night after I get home from work and settled.  Thanks for your patience!

The Spring final pattern was just emailed out.  

I fixed all of my birds so they're great now!  Finished my bird row. I like how it turned out.
