Threads of Memory blocks by Becky Brown
"I've been reading comments on Hospital Sketches [Facebook] about how people struggle with deciding which fabrics to use - don't we all! Well, I finally found the answer to the border for this quilt - it didn't involved flying geese or lots of tiny 1/2 square triangles - just fabric! The right fabric was waiting for me all this time - a simple solution for a border and I think it looks just right, and I'm calling it done."
I'd call it well done.
She had that fabric around---she just didn't see what a perfect match it would be.
And Lori DeJarnatt has had her 2015 Stars in a Time Warp quilted by Diane Knott and it's well done too.
Chrome orange the perfect set for all those stars of different repro prints.

We did the Stars in Her Crown Quilt Along on my other blog
Material Culture last winter. Cordelia Nance has finished all nine blocks.
We're plotting a new
9- (not nine) 12-block Quilt Along for the Material Culture blog starting in August. Pieced; Skill Level-Challenging
If you are late to the party you can still buy the patterns for all these series quilts at my Etsy shop.
Beautiful quilts and a teaser! Makes my Wednesday!
Each and every one beautiful! Great job by all!!
Can't wait for the new quilt a long,
Thanks for sharing my mostly chrome orange quilt!! I think a little of that color goes a long way!!
The border for Becky's quilt is super cool!!
Lori--when you have all those different blocks sometimes chrome orange is the best thing to bully them all into line.
Is there a series of patterns you recommend for a confident beginner? I prefer to hand-piece if that makes a difference. Thank you!
Both fabulous quilts for sure! Love both the romantic pinks/browns, and the bold chrome.
OOOooooo! I love that first quilts border fabric! A whole bunch of lovelies! Each unique.
