Row by Row Quilt - Last Row

At the Allatoona Quilter's Guild we have been working on the garden row quilt for the past 8 months and I have posted photos of most of the rows here. This is the last one. As you can probably guess, this one was designed by Michelle.

Each person has selected their own palette of fabrics. Mine are black and white backgrounds with various bright fabrics for the rows. I didn't work on my row yesterday so you will have to be content with Michelle's row. The two hands will go on the ends of the center panel. Each row of the quilt measures 48" across but they are various heights. This one is 8" tall.

We have several rows of fusible applique like this one, some paper piecing (fruits, vegetables and bird houses), regular piecing and some combination rows. This is the first time we have worked on an original design so it will be fun to see how the quilts turn out.

Next month we will be looking at ways to join the various rows into a quilt and start thinking about borders.
