Weekly Finish...Or Not: Rhododendron Trail Quilt Top Plus One More
I am amazed that I actually finished the top so soon. Of course, it'll be a few months before I quilt and bind it so for now it's in my pile of tops to be quilted. That pile continues to grow and with a new quilting machine, I really have no excuse. LOL!
I also finished this quilt top using the Silver Wolf panel plus four pillow panels.
I bought the panels years ago at a quilt show with the intention of making my daughter a quilt for her birthday.
This is the original quilt displayed outside the retailer's booth at the quilt show. I fell in love with it and knew it'd be perfect for my daughter. At the time it wasn't in my budget to buy the kit so I just purchased the panels.
Last year, I decided to finally make this quilt for her birthday this year and had to search online for the companion fabric. I was lucky to still find some of it but had to make do with a different fabric for the HSTs. I didn't have a pattern so I did my best to create the same design, although I did use a narrower border.
I'm very happy with the results and can't wait to finish it.
