Ozark Cobblestone quilt

I've been meaning to show this quilt but the timing for photo taking wasn't good.  We had snow and then a thaw, then rain and it would have meant this quilt would be dragging in the dirt.  So, indoors it had to be.

A close-up of the border (an altered version found in EQ7 called Combed Swag Border).
A close-up of some of my fabrics.  The block was found in Blockbase and it is called Ozard Cobblestone or Y007, but I changed the name to Ozark Cobblestone as it sounded better.  Tehe.

All these pieces were hand pieced using EPP (English paper piecing) method.  This was a labour of love and I so enjoyed the hours put into this quilt.

Quilt Details:

Started:  October 2010 (top finished March 2021)

Finished:  October 2022

Quilt Size:  100" x 100-3/4" (top size before quilting, washing and drying:  101-1/2" x 101-1/2")

There wasn't much shrinkage as this quilt was dried (folded in half) on a clothes rack.

Batting:  Hobbs poly

Machine quilted by:  Kathy Wareham using "Augusta" design by My Creative Stitches

There we go ..... another quilt finished and being used.  I'm so glad that the plunge was taken to have my quilts machine quilted by another person.  To me, at my age, it is so worth it.

Cherish your day, cherish your life!

Ozark cobblestones is a beauty! The border is wonderful, a very nice contrast to the geometric center. Long arm quilting is so much faster than hand quilting. Happy stitching and Happy Christmas!

Awesome finish with binding too! Hand piecing each of the blocks was indeed a labor of love. The border is a great design as well. When you find a machine quilter who gets your vision for the quilt it makes a wonderful added design element.

Another lovely quilt. I really like that border. I'm just now learning English paper piecing and it will likely take me ten years to get anything finished if I stick with it. Not finding it to be as engaging as I thought. Will persevere for a while and see if its just lack of skill that's the problem. Hope you're well.
