    Finally made a quilt per pattern and fabric

    Well, it was a first - and I have to say I missed the design anxiety and fabric anxiety but it looks good. Tavern Blues, Paula Barnes, and pattern offered free from mfgr. by Nancy Rink. I can learn as much from patterns as I can from DIY.

    I made up what I think is my best machine quilting yet - wiggly lines following the ropy braid on the stripes.

    It is for my DD's sweetheart who is recovering from a horrific bike accident. I did it with a light poly batting so it would not weigh down his legs in bed or in his wheelchair. Soon he will be walking again. He is a classic, conservative guy and he loves the quilt.

    Very nice.
    Your display of the quilt is very 'magaziney' - good photo.

    love it.. I am sure he was very grateful..... I broke my ankle about 2 years ago, had to have surgery my whole leg hurt very bad, and my DMIL made me one.

    Some quilts are so classic that you just have to follow the original. This looks great.
