Finish It Up Friday ~ Brinton Hall!

I still can’t quite believe it is done. My first Brinton Hall post was back in July of 2015. This was from a pattern that was published last summer in Quiltmania magazine. There was a lot more to the original quilt, I just feel in love with the center and that is what I wanted to make. Still, it took me FOREVER!

Here are a few close ups of the fabric I used in the medallions.

And my scrappy borders.

When I first started quilting this, I only had half as many lines running through the hexies.

It didn’t look done enough to me, but I moved ahead, took it off the frame and added the binding.

Then, I had to add more quilting. This experience reminded me why I my long arm so much!

But I got there in the end. This picture was taken in almost full sun so it looks a bit washed out. You sure can see the quilting texture though!

Here is a look at the back.

It was really windy the day I tried to take pictures! I am not real happy with my feathers. You can see the crude endings in this picture.

But they don’t show up much anyway.


Thanks for following along on this journey! This is a sweet finish indeed!

    Katy, I think it’s been either too sunny or raining each time I’ve tried to shoot pictures these past months, but your quilt looks beautiful! I really like the variety of fabrics you used, and appreciate quilts that mix things up like this one. It adds instance character and style, and lets your personality shine through. Good job!
