Country Plates

Over my Christmas break i was able to work on one of my own quilts!  Just like the cobbler's children have no shoes, i rarely get my own tops quilted.
So with that said....here's a bunch of pictures!!

The starting of Country Plates...

 Fabric line is mostly Walk in the Park but any cute 30's line would be great!

Did I say a 'bunch' of pictures?  Lol

In Country Plates, there are a total of 20 Farmer's Wife blocks using the Farmer's Wife Quilt Revival Classes
Class 1 and 2 gives modern rotary cutting and piecing instructions for making 20 blocks AND class 2 includes a 10 block table runner pattern, set similar to my Country Plates quilt. 

My 'Set Your Quilt'  pattern includes how to create a 'Zigzag On point' setting along with 5 other settings and math charts so you can determine a quilt style and size that works for you. 

Sashed with freehand spines and feathers...with swags in the final border.

I stitched in the ditch around each block and cross hatched 2" inside the blocks.  Used Linda Hrcka's QP Curved templates for circles to create a 'plate', then feathered inside each.

Kind of reminds me of white paper plates...
so i named this quilt 'Country Plates'!   

More stitch in the ditch around the inner border
  YAY!  A 2016 FINISH!!
