Pleasant Prairie


Ta Da!  Here's a look at the first quilt for The Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club ~ Journey Five!  The name of the quilt is Pleasant Prairie.  Had loads of fun making it.  Remember how I covet the border fabric which is an old Jo Morton?  I only had a fat quarter of it, which wasn't enough to make the quilt with whole pieces, so I "made-do" with what I had and pieced the side borders together.  They turned out fairly well, I think.  Next week, I'll start on another.....so stay tuned.  Enjoy your weekend and I hope you get some time to sew.

As always....thanks a bunch for stopping by!

PS....don't forget to email me your Orphans & Scraps photos along with where you live.  It's almost time for the "Airing of the Quilts"!!

  3. I love this quilt...and that border fabric. I've done this too with fat quarters to make them fit. It's all good.

  4. What a sweet little beauty! Love this design!
    I enlarged the photo and could barely detect the piecing of the border--nice work!
    I love that border fabric, too, and I only have a scrap of it left. Hard to see favorites go, but something usually comes along soon to be a new favorite. : )

  5. Pam, Sometimes you just have to have more of a favorite fabric! I found some Lexington fabrics on Ebay if you really want more, you can buy it now, or bid on the auctions. I love your little quilts!

  6. That Jo Morton fabric you used in the border is fabulous. Love this little quilt pattern. Fat quarters are great for small quilts, and, in most cases, they can be pieced for the backing as well.
