Finally, Wednesday's Wanderings Completed

Tonight I will be unveiling my Wednesday's Wanderings quilt for the first time, during my visit to the Moorestown Area Quilters in Mt Laurel, NJ.   
It is finally complete with sashing, borders and binding.
 It was a year long journey, chronicling my wanderings in 2012.
It is a great memory jogger for me about how wonderful the year was.  I am amazed by how busy I was and how many places I visited.
 
There are only borders to the top and bottom. I thought that was all that was needed.
 
 I used fusible machine applique to add the words.
In the background, I used chicken scratch stitching that I did by hand. 
 It's a little blurry in the photo.
 
I wish I could have found the time to repeat a similar documentation of my year for 2013.
Maybe next year.
2012, it was a very good year!

  1. Very nice. I'd love to do something like this. We are having our first granddaughter this summer. Maybe a quilt like this for her first year might be a nice gift.

  4. It looks terrific! I like your borders. They are just enough to frame it without taking anything away from the individual blocks!
    Beautiful!
