Wilfred & Cloves Finish!!!

I've finished the Wilfred & Cloves quilt!! This pattern is found in Creating Heirlooms, One Stitch at a Time by Carolyn Konig. Many of the quilts in Carolyn's book are reproduction of older quilts. There is no information about this quilt, if it is a reproduction or if she designed it herself. 

The pieced border isn't what I had originally planned but I like it. It certainly brightens up all the brown. The quilt flimsy measures 93" by 102".

At the time of writing this post, I'm planning on having the pieced body of the quilt long arm quilted with the Baptist fan design and leaving the medallion unquilted. I'll quilt that by hand.
Wilfred & Cloves was the last project on my list of UFQ's but don't worry about me, I still have plenty of projects to work on. Right now I'm going to enjoy the satisfaction of a finish!

Here is a closer view of some of the fabrics I've used in the quilt.

I think there is one fabric with a light blue background.

Read my last post about Wilfred & Cloves to learn more.

Congratulations on a fabulous finish! I love the idea of machine quilting everything except the medallion. The hand quilting will be a beautiful detail. Thanks for linking to TGIFF :)
