ALYOF Finish and October Goal

I finished this quilt with a few hours to spare for the September ALYOF link up.
You can click here to see all the other finishes for September.

I decided to take out the light red chevron fabric in  the center sashing, but I kept it as an inner border. I quilted it using an all over meander pattern.

I wanted a darker navy fabric for the binding to match the Reunion fabric, but I didn't have any in my stash so I went with the darkest blue I had.  I was worried at first, but it turned out pretty good.
The quilt measures about 45 x 50 and I already have a little cutie in mind to mail it to.
This quilt is also on my third quarter list for 2014. So go to knock another UFO off my list.

My October goal is to finish the quit top for these Dresden plates.

They are all sewn together, they just need a backdrop.
I am aiming to finish only the top this month because this is costume month and I know most of my sewing will be going toward that, but I really want to make some progress on this quilt because I want it on my couch for the Christmas holiday.

So my goal is one Dresden quilt top.



  1. what a beautiful quilt! I think you did the right thing taking the inner sashing out as i love the design of this.
