Wa la!

First of all, thanks to everyone for wishing Mr. CnW a happy birthday. Who woulda thunk a man of his age (old) would get his feelings hurt by not making the blog cut? I’m still smiling about that. He read each and every one of the comments and you all made his day!

Now, on to quilty stuff.

Remember these?

This is what they turned into.

I was a little concerned about how busy the neutrals were, but once it got put together, I decided I like it. The pattern is called “Glory Bound” by Bonnie Blue Quilts.

I think I’m going to tea dye it or distress it or whatever you do to give it an aged look. I’ll have Mary from Quilt Hollow help me with that part since she does it to most of her quilts. Okay Mary?

Went to the guild’s quilt show in the park today. I’ll post pictures once I get them edited.

Hugs, Anne

Oh Anne. . . it's beautiful! I love the idea to overdye it. . . I think there is a recipe in one of the Blackbird books. . . (I want to try it too!)

Wow - it really pops, Anne! Love the neutrals you used!! I could come over with my hammer and distress it for you - LOL! Seriously, I think tea-dying would be really nice!
Cheers!

WOW WOW WOW - that baby is a stunner - love everything about it. I'll be interested in seeing it tea stained and it will give it a real antique look I bet since it's so scrappy. It's beautiful Anne - you did a great job :).

Hugs - Karen

Now I do like what that pile of triangles turned into! I would have used all the different background pieces, too.

Wow! I love it! I love the scrappy look of it and I think dying it will add that little extra wow factor.
Wish hubby a belated birthday for me! Hope it was a good one!

I've had that pattern for a while now, Anne. After seeing yours, maybe that will inspire me to get moving on mine. I even have the fabric set aside for it as well.

Yours is simply beautiful!

Your "Glory Bound" quilt turned out great! Wasn't it a fun quilt to make? I enjoyed making mine and hope to have it quilted and bound soon. Happy belated birthday to Mr. CnW. His cake looked delicious:)

Sherri said...

I just love it! I've seen several quilts lately in blogland from Bonnie Blue Quilts patterns...I've never made one, but since I'm loving all the ones I see...maybe I'd better get one of those patterns!

Jeanne said...

Great quilt! It has my name all over it.

Molly said...

Love the quilt! I made this quilt too. I used Triangles On A Roll because I happened to have some that size.

Sue said...

That quilt is just beautiful. I love every inch of it! I have never aged a quilt before. Sounds like it could be fun :D

I love how all those pieces turned out and I think tea-dyeing it, will give it "character" (as my father-in-law used to say). :-)
