Sandy Quilt # 3 is Finished!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Another Quilt is Ready

I’ve worked diligently to bring to completion Sandy Quilt # 3.  With much joy I am pleased to report it is finally finished.  Through the efforts of the wonderful ladies that constructed the individual blocks coupled with the hours I have logged to assemble the quilt top, apply the quilting stitches and finally frame it with a binding this quilt is now ready to be shipped.

A Look Back

Sandy Quilt # 3 is the third of four quilts I am assembling for the Hurricane Sandy Quilt Project sponsored in part by the Quilting Gallery.  Historical details of the process can be found here, here, here and here.  Listed below are its vital statistics:

  • The quilt has 6 rows of 7 blocks each for a total of 42 blocks
  • The quilt measures 83.75″ wide  x 99.25″ long
  • The blocks originated from California (12) , British Columbia, Canada (10), Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada (6), Vermont (1), Washington (6), Wisconsin (5), and Wyoming (2)
  • The quilt has two borders.  Border # 1 is blue and measures 2.5″ wide.  Border # 2 is black and measures 4″ wide.
  • The binding is black
  • The brand of batting is Warm & Natural
  • The backing was made from a multicolored, paisley print, flannel fabric
  • The outer border was quilted with a meandering stitch, the blue border has a bubble stitch and the body of the quilt was stitched with a paisley pattern

Cross that One Off

Well there you have it.  Although I am able to record this one as a successfully completed project for the 2013 A Lovely Year of Finishes challenge there’s an endless list of other items awaiting attention.  No time to bask in the glow.  Time to move on to Sandy Quilt # 4.

  1. […] I made a commitment to.  The first was finished in December.  The second one in January and the third quilt in February.  It seems only natural to declare my fourth and final Hurricane Sandy quilt as […]
