Challenge Quilt Revealed

Finally, after 2 months our challenge quilts are finished. Lisa , Nicole,Cindy and I have finished the blended quilt project we agreed upon in November of last year. From the glimpses I have seen in our progress reports I believe we have all come up with different interpretations of blended quilts, and all of the patterns are different.

I chose to use Windsor, a very dark dramatic fabric collection from Sentimental Studios that I found a couple of years ago. At the time I bought it I had this quilt pattern in mind because I wanted to achieve an old world tapestry look. I don't think this quilt will appeal to everyone, but it is done, and it looks like it is supposed to, lol. Maybe you will like it too.

Perry,those blues you put in are just ethereal! I think you did an incredible job on this project. It looks like something you would find hanging on the wall of a French chateau!

Perry, your quilt is beautiful. It doesn't seem at all like it's been 2 months since you all announced you were doing this.

It has been so much fun following this challenge and seeing the entirely different results you each came up with. Before I even read Nicole's comment I was thinking French Chateau!! (Great minds think alike :) )

Simply beautiful.
