All of a sudden it seems like all sorts of projects are being finished up. It may be time to check out all those storage boxes and containers under the cutting table and see what long ago forgotten UFO's are stashed there.Camden Station is finished. I am very happy with it and just need to finish off the handwork on the hanger on its back and it is going up on the wall in our entry area.Now there was just one issue. Note the bottom row is missing on my piece. I purchased this project as a kit. Usually a kit involves way more fabric than really needed. This time that was not the case. I was out of several fabrics needed to complete the last 3 rows. I did investigate shopping for more fabric without much success. The very tiny prints in these fabrics were just not available at my local quilt shop. Frankly at that point shopping on line for small bits and pieces of fabrics seemed way to labor intensive so I decided to stop where I was and call it a finished. The Hello Posy quilt top is finished and should be off to the quilter this coming week. The pattern is from A Life With Quilts by Melanie Traylor. I actually ordered the fabric from Melanie as well. I have found the fabric bundles she sells are very different and Oh So Pretty. Currently I have another bundle I just purchased from her and am thinking about another quilt out of the 5 featured in her book. The low volume background fabrics are all scrappy out of my own stash. Another reason I am so fond of her patterns, she often features low volume backgrounds in her patterns and sells quarter yard bundle as well.
I love Camden Station as it is, and the poppy field quilt is wonderful. Sweet and lovely colors!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing, and linking up.
Wow, your Camden Station quilt is stunning. You did a wonderful job on both quilts.ReplyDelete
What a great finish! Sorry to hear that the kit was insufficient for the full size. I love a kit that is very generous to cover all the needs of the project plus more for cutting mistakes!ReplyDelete
Congrats on finishing Camden Station! It's a beautiful quilt. The Posy quilt is really cute. Happy stitching this week.ReplyDelete
Both are beautiful, but the first on is my favorite. You're most talented.ReplyDelete
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

No would would notice the Camden Station missing rowo unless you pointed it out. It's amazing.ReplyDelete
Camden Station is lovely! So sorry to hear the kit was skimpy. That typically doesn't happen, and it's so frustrating when it does! Love Posey. It'll be so cute when it's quilted. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
What a shame about Camden Station and not having enough fabric for a whole row of blocks, that's quite a short fall. Have you contacted them? Your nine block hanging looks lovely, nevertheless. Hello Posy looks lovely, fresh, and Spring like.ReplyDelete
Camden Station is beautiful! It will be stunning in your entry area. That is a shame about the kit being short on fabrics, but the three rows look great. I love your posy quilt, great colors. Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!ReplyDelete
Oh the delicate hand work is gorgeous. Bummer that there wasn't enough fabric in the quilt kit for the Posey quilt. LOVE the snowball-style flowers. It's very cute. ~~Kathy S.ReplyDelete

Whether or not it is like the pattern makes no difference/ I love how yours turned out. Truly the colors are amazing and the applique is just beautiful. I know you must have been so bummed and I feel for you! But Hooray for finishing the UFO!ReplyDelete
