    Lady Guinevere's quilt

    I made the nine blocks for this about a year ago (maybe longer, as time flies when you're a quilter...) and I ran out of the ivory background fabric. I put the blocks away. Two months ago, at a local quilt exhibit, I bought the fabric that is shown on the corners of this quilt. There is a close up photo of this luscious fabric that made me say goodbye to reason and goodbye to the fabric diet......

    This Tuesday night, while sifting through some patterns and getting an idea from one of them, the concept for this quilt with my nine blocks came together. It looks so regal, doesn't it?

    Looks incredible! I love how you've set it on point with the tapestry/border print on the corners.

    That is beautiful and goes well with your blocks. Who is the maker of that fabric?

    Thank you everyone. The fabric is imported from Holland. It is called a Java batik. I have spent time looking online for it, with no luck. The vendor who sold it is Fabritique, in Massachusetts. I think her tag line is "beautiful fabrics from faraway places" or something similar.

    Beautiful! A fabulous piece to add to your fabulous blocks. I particularly like the way your alternate squares complete the 9 original blocks. Fancy stuff! I can see why you didn't walk away without it.

    Hi Karen,
    There isn't a pattern for this quilt. Here's info on the components of it:
    Blocks are called Night and Day 2 and can be found on Quilters' Cache using non-directional fabrics. I added a level of challenge by using different border fabrics. 5 fabrics are used for the 9 blocks.
    The setting triangle idea using border prints is similar to a quilt called Zenith by Gail Kessler which at one time was on Andover Fabrics website as a free download. That was the idea for my wide mitered borders , but I had to figure out my own measurements and yardage.
