Adding the cars to "All Around the Town" is the final step to making this quilt top...and now I am there. It was fun to finally get to choose the colors and placement. I ended up adding a few extra ones. And now the top is done!
I finished last night while watching "Masterpiece Theater" on PBS. Now I will always associate this top with "Tess of the D'Urbervilles" (in addition to "American Pickers" on the History Channel).
I was lucky to have a piece large enough for the outer border in my stash. The top is slightly under 60 x 60 (which assures I can enter it as a wall hanging rather than a bed quilt in the upcoming Sauder Village Quilt Show).
The quilt isn't as dark looking as the pictures above...the close-ups below turned out a little brighter and the colors look more true.
I think this will fun to hand quilt! I can't wait to get it layered and basted!
I'm sure a lot of sewing was done yesterday and last night during the Super Bowl...can't wait to see everyone's blogged progress!
