Victoria, What Have You Wrought?


I no sooner finished the quilt top from Victoria Findlay Wolfe's workshop in Paducah, than I started another. I am using blocks exchanged in a guild activity years ago. Lo and behold, there were a bunch of Halloween themed ones  in the box! Enough to make another double wedding ring quilt.This one will be a bit less involved - no pieced outside arcs. All the arcs will be orange and all the melons will be black. This is a pick-it-up-off-the-floor-and-cut-it quilt. Oh, Victoria, what terrible path of obsession have you led me down?

In case you are wondering about the first one I made, the top is now finished and will be resting while the quilting makes itself known to me.

  1. the wedding rigs pattern is certainly very eye catching yours looks great but far too fiddly for me good excuse for not attempting one I am divorced!

  3. Is that piping or a flange around the edge of the blocks on the finished piece? It really sets it off. Great job -- that's a wonderfully edgy quilt for the season!

    1. It's a flange stitched down to the border in the ditch.

  4. Can really see it better here. I love the setting and what a great use of those exchange blocks. I just might "steal" this layout for some of my exchange blocks. Great inspiration!
