Blackford's Beauty top finished

msmeowJanuary 21, 2013

I just finished the top of the quilt for our friend. It's 70 X 86. Hard to tell in the photo but the wide border fabric is black with multicolored music notes - I thought it appropriate as our friend was the choir director at church for 27 years! The backing fabric is a bright tropical print. He also has a beach condo so I think he'll like the fabric.

Beautiful. I love scrappy and the way you did the corners of the border.

Lovely quilt - it's always nice making something for someone else and utting in fabrics that are special to them. Beautiful!

Looks good, Donna. The music notes makes it extra special and I'm sure he'll think of you often.

Thanks, everyone! I hope he likes it. It's all from my stash except the wide border and the backing fabric. :)
