Girl Gang nearly done

Here is my completely pieced Girl Gang quilt. This quilt is so big, I have to take two pictures so you can see it all. I finally got the last border on.

Now I have to find time and energy to quilt it.

I sure enjoyed taking this class.

    I love your girl gang quilt. I have the pattern and am thinking of making it, but doing it with machine applique. Any thoughts about that???? I’ll be glad when Sew Bee It is rebuilt. Are you in the current girl gang class??

      Thanks for the comment. I am very happy with the way my girl gang quilt came out, and it was amazing to see how we all started out with the same pattern and by our color choices and block variations ended up with such different quilts. And yet they are all beautiful. If you look back in Sew Bee It’s photo stream, I think you can see pictures of all the quilt tops that we ended up with from the class.

      I am not in the current girl gang. That quilt is pretty, but there are houses in every block and that does not appeal to me. I may join the block of the month next year though.

      I don’t see why you couldn’t machine applique the quilt. Some gals in the class did on part or all of theirs. go for it.

      I am also looking forward to Sew Bee It’s reopening. I miss is.

      Thanks again for the comment.

      Thanks for the kind words. I enjoyed making it. It is my first Jan Patek pattern, as well as the largest applique project I have attempted and I really learned a lot about applique in the process.

      I made some modifications to the pattern though. The flowers are not the ones she had and the section at the bottom with the rooster was different. She had three beehives, but I decided I wanted more symmetry so I copied the top section to the bottom. Now though, I wish I had included the beehives, because my husband started raising bees last year. I guess I will have to make another quilt with bees!

      Another cool thing is how each person in our group ended up with a totally different looking quilt by using different fabrics.
