Lori Smith BOM DONE!!

Posted by Picasa
I wish this was a better picture, the colouring is not that great. Here is the my finished version of the Lori Smith pattern Peaceful Nights. If you are familiar with this pattern you will notice that my center block is different from the pattern. I wasn't happy with the center block in Lori's pattern and I had decided from the beginning that I would not make the center block anyway. I didn't have a plan for the blocks and was hoping as I was making them, something would come to me. At the same time I had done a block swap with another stitching group, the center is the block I started and then Donna made the LeMoyne star border around the center. I wasn't sure how I would finish the block swap until I had a light bulb moment...has that ever happened to you??? Why couldn't I put these two projects together into one. The fabrics and colours went together, I only needed to add the half square triangles to make the center block fit. That was a fun exercise in math...I needed to recruit the help of hubby for that one...he was so patient and helpful.

So there you have it another top completed and I'm so happy with how it all came together.

I'm so far behind in reading blogs, we spent 4 days relaxing at the lake. I'm feeling more tired today...you'd think I'd be well rested. I don't know why that happens, I guess too much resting is not a good thing.

Looks fabulous Wendy - doesn't look like the same quilt at all. I see from the link that the original quilt the centre is on point and yours is not. It turned out beautifully.

Lorraine said...

You should be well pleased with your efforts..the quilt is gorgeous!! You need a rest to get over your holiday! I think the body takes a little while to slow down and then a little longer to rest and sometimes we need more than a few days off! I am looking forward to a bit of time off over the Christmas period.....and that will be here before we know it!

Kim said...

Wonderful quilt, Wendy.
