Suitable For Framing top

I am doing the Color Blocks Quilts class with Debbie Brown

( previous post here: Color Blocks Progress )

And now!! it is topped!

Her pattern is called Suitable for Framing and it was a 64 x 64 inch square quilt.



But!! I am going to guess - you know me by now - and I wanted it to be Quilt of Valor Size - and so!!

I added the bottom and top two borders - and voila! it is now 64 x 80!  Perfect QOV size!!

I chose a Navy Blue with Stars back - and am now prepping it to quilt... It may be February - but thats okay - It will be ready when I am! I have some cool Client quilts to work on first ( and you can see snippets of them on my Quiltygirl FB page )

Great name! The top/bottom squares add a nice touch.

Wonderful quilt. It really works well with your two added borders. Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it. (I would do something fast and furious because, yea, I'll admit it, I'm lazy!) Great finish...

She’s a fun techer - have taken her classes in person. Not sure I could wait to quilt a lovely like that, but all things in their time.

It is beautiful. I like it so much better rectangular. The extra borders look terrific.

It turned out great. The borders were a great way to increase the size.

As soon as I saw this I thought what a great QOV quilt! Seems I was not the only one.
