Blocks, nickels and Blackie

I quilted this top today using freehand feathers. It's made up of all orphan blocks and will be going to a special little girl who wants a "big girl" quilt.

Last year our guild had an exchange of fabric squares (nickels - 5 inch). I went thru them and pulled all the patriotic ones. I am unsure of the outer border. Seems too large.. What do you think?

And finally a picture of Blackie with his coat looking real good. He's such a sweetie.

  1. Love both quilts. The border looks fine on Quilt 2. Your blackie is beautiful, looks just like my cat Beanie.

  3. Blackie's coat looks like black gold! Lovely.
    Your patriotic quilt looks very nice and I like it just the way it is.
