Bukhara - A Blended Quilt

This was my quilt of the month for November. It is in the Blended Quilts book which is no longer available. I believe however, it has been republished in the book Blended Quilts by In The Beginning. I call it Bukhara because I made it from the Maywood collection of the same name.


I have been know to do something different to an occasional backing for one of my quilts. This was one of them. I liked this fabric so much that I wanted to see more of some of the other fabric pieces than the little strips, so this was what I did to the back.
And here is a closeup. If I had not been so very tired of this quilt by the time I got to the border stage, I would have mitered them, and really should have. I just didn't want to go to the trouble at that point.

And where is this quilt now you ask? Well, the 17 year old grandson, Jackson, conned me out of it because he "needed" a quilt. So it lives with my grandson and I believe he does like it a lot. I get to visit it once in a while, lol.

PS...I am not posting anything new quilty-wise because I don't have anything new to show. I am working on some Christmas things and they shall remain secret. We have not decorated the house, and at the rate things are going we probably won't. And I have had an earache from Hades all week, caused by allergies I think, and I really don't feel good enough to kick up my heels, so to speak. So everybody pick up the pace to cover me, please. :>)

What a beautiful quilt, Perry! I love those fabrics, and the back is a great way to show them off a little bit more! Sorry you are under the weather! Do you think you might have an ear infection?

Did you call the doctor yet? What do you mean you can't show us pictures because it's a secret. That's not nice.

Great quilt! And if you have an ear ache get to the Dr.'s. I had an ear infection a few weeks ago and went back to the Dr. because it was still bothering me. It's still infected so I am on round 2 of antibiotics.
