BOM's Away Monday - 18 Mar 2012 - Rainin' Janes this week, and "Patriots" is home! :)

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)

WOWZA!!!


"Patriots in Petticoats" just got home from Margaret's quilting studio, and her work is exquisite. She did a marvelous job of enhancing the period represented in this reproduction BOM, and her magic turned a project that I was so-so about (while the historian in me was delighted with the connections and stories of the ladies represented, it's just not my colors/fabric styles) into a quilt that I LOVE!!!  


(Margaret's photo) I love the inner gridwork diamond that she created
around the medallion.


Margaret has posted gorgeous shots that I could never duplicate on this foggy morning, so do jump over and see her write-ups about it: "Patriots & Petticoats is Going Home" and two previous posts. Can't wait to get its binding put on!


I have to share at least one more shot, because she does such beautiful work. If you're looking for a talented longarmer with a nice, short turn-around and customer-friendly shipping, I recommend you keep Margaret of Quilts of Love on your list. 


(Also Margaret's photo)

An in-progress shot - Don't you *love* what she did with the ribbon border??

And see how she'd basted the log cabins to keep everything stable while working? 



You really should check out her blog. Her personal quilts are amazing in both design and execution. It's no wonder she's an award-winning quilter.


You'll get to see this once more when I have the binding and label finished. I should do its hanging sleeve, too, while I know where its fabrics are! Give me a couple of weeks - life is CHAOS for me between coursework and getting the house ready for market. This baby is getting a properly hand-stitched job, and that will take time right now.




Ok, this is fun because a ton of Baby Janes that have been floating around my foundation-piecing and applique areas came to fruition earlier this week, so now I'm almost caught up with the BOM pace for it:

Yep, I sewed the pinwheel the

It's staying.  :)

Nope, it's sewn correctly,
Blogger just spun it.

What a glorious quilt, Lynn! The quilting is exquisite. And so many DJs - wow!

Your quilt is simply stunning! It's definitely an example of how quilting makes the quilt. Your beautiful workmanship and the quilter's longarm skills make for quite a show-stopping due. I do hope you'll enter this in a show. It will certainly win something!

Oh my, that Patriots and Petticoat quilt is to die for! And your other blocks are just as adorable.
