Fossil Fern Quilt – Done

FossilFern-done1This is the completed Fossil Fern Quilt. Quilted in the hoop, with stars in the border (used a grand endless hoop which makes the job quite simple), and a pieced binding to bring out the colours of the piecing. The back is solid – no piecing this time, in the end, because the quilt turned out small enough that one WOF (width of fabric) was enough to cover the back – it’s the same blue fabric of the wide border.

FossilFern-done2Here is the quilting detail – the star border, the loops with stars the quilting element.

This will likely be a baby quilt for a boy – the blue back kind of determines that, although I wouldn’t be adverse to giving it to a baby girl, but it might not be seen as “appropriate” and therefore not used. So probably a baby boy it will be. For now, it’s hanging in a closet with the rest of the completed quilts waiting for new homes.

  1. Hi! I am the administrator of the Benartex Facebook page. We love your use of Fossil Fern fabrics in this quilt – may we share your project and images on our Facebook and Instagram pages?

    • However did you find the blog page? Yes of course you can share the project. BTW The quilt didn’t go to a child, it was a gift to some adult friends of mine.
      Can you send me links when you post it?
      Thanks.
