ORBQ Quilt Top and Backing





Here are my quilt top and backing for the quilt I am working on as part of Old Red Barn Quilt Along. Liking the quilt and the process very much - have "met" some really interesting people around the world who share an interest in quilting. I find it amazing that with the same pattern so much diversity is being created. Even when some have used the same fabric the quilts are different and all are beautiful. What a lesson for us all - we can be the same and different and beautiful in our own unique way.

I'm also struck by how much we worry and wonder about our choices but we keep working on fueled by our desire to create and by the incredible fellowship offered in support of each other.

With a cupboard full of fabric (understatement) I am so thankful for the opportunity to use some of it and to see one little dream of mine along its way to be realized.

Now on to the actual quilting...wish me luck

And how do you mitre corners anyway?

I love your fabric choices for the quilt! It's lovely. I so agree that it is very interesting to participate in such a diverse group. Every quilt looks completely different than the next even though it's the same pattern! Simply amazing, but then that's quilting for you. :)

I love your fabric choices. I have had so much fun doing this quilt-along. I love how everyone puts a bit of themselves into their quilts.
