Land That I Love Finale!

The finished quilt as shown will be approx 18x26.5
Many of you were concerned about the busy prints and fabrics. I chose blue (like the antique) which does calm it down a bit.   (do you find my error humble design element? I only noticed after it was entirely completed.

Choose your fabric and cut:
(2) 6 1/2" squares
The following are a tad oversized to give you some wiggle room for trimming after getting your top together. 
(2) 5 1/2" squares then cut once on the diagonal to make 4 triangles. These will be your 4 corners. 
Cut (2) 10" squares, then cut twice on the diagonal for 8 triangles. (we will only use 6) 

Lay out your pieces as shown. We will assemble them on the diagonal, row by row. When attaching rows to each other I use a pin right at the seams so the blocks will be lined up. Once you get the top together make sure to admire your lovely creation!
Layer your top, batting and backing to prepare for quilting. (if you are a new quilter and don't really know what that means ask, please!) 
I machine quilted the long seams in the ditch  and hand quilted the rest. 
I hand quilted one direction about 3/4" apart. 
I used a red print for the binding.

Here is the vintage quilt I used for inspiration.  You can see the backing was folded over to the front to bind. 

It is so charming! I hope you had fun and love your quilt! I'll have a linky party in a couple of weeks so we can all share in the finish! You can add your quilt even if it isn't quilted yet. 

We went camping last weekend and I brought my little quilt to the Land That I Love for photo ops! 

Have a wonderful weekend dear friends.

  7. Lori, it looks like a wonderful replica of the vintage inspiration quilt! What a great photo shoot for this quilt. So appropriate.
    Since I did a different colorway, I need to go digging to see what I should use for my setting squares and triangles. I am excited to see how it looks in the end!

  16. I love pictures with quilt taken outdoors! I decided that I needed to order some fabric to finish my "Land that I Love" quilt, so It won't be finished until I get the order from Two Thimbles which will come with my Sampler Club for November. I seem to use up blue CW fabrics really fast!
