Finishes: Westering Women

Stitch&Knit posted a picture of her finished Westering Women quilt
(she quilted it by the block each month)

She used many fabrics from a repro line Terry Thompson and I did years
ago called Lewis & Clark. Perfect for a Western trek.
(The color is better in the top picture.)

I've been lurking, copying photos of finished Westering Women tops.
I've done a litle Photoshopping, squaring things up, brightening, etc.

 They look great.

What a variety.

Terry framed each block, which is a good way
to wrestle sampler blocks into a uniform size. Make some frames wider than others.
The blocks with their frames all finish to the same size.

Thank you for sharing all these beauties. It is a lot of fun to see the differences between the same block on these quilts. Congrats to all the people who finished their Westering Women. I am working on mine still. ;^)
