My 2010 Alpine Quilt Group Quilt Finished

28 comments
I really loved our 2010 Alpine Group Quilt Project designed by Jina Barney. I am really proud of myself for keeping up with the project and completing the quilt in a timely way.
I love how it turned out. We started the quilt in the center and every month added blocks onto it. I kind of backed myself into a corner when I started the quilt with that black dot border in the center. But it worked out when I chose the big dot for the outside border.
The quilt is really huge. So big (long) that it needs a California twin bed! But I love the life in the design and love the colors. The blocks were incredibly fun to make.
I hung it on this wall to photograph only. You can't really see the bottom but I love the stockings laying on the floor. I'm not sure where I'll use it because it isn't the size of quilt wall hanging and we don't have twin sized beds at our house anymore. Everyone has a full or larger. It really was one of the most fun quilts I've made.

Your Alpine quilt really did turn out beautifully! Every block is a reminder of all the fun ladies in your group, especially the talented designer Jina.
*I see butterfly blocks in there too.

It is gorgeous! I love it, Nanette, and I've seen smaller quilts used across the end of a larger bed. Maybe you could do that. It's too pretty to put out of sight!

I'm proud of you too Nanette!
It's not easy keeing up on things sometimes.
You did a great job and it's beautiful. The black dots turned out great:)

Nanette, that really is a darling quilt. I admire you for staying caught up. Way to go, girl!

Jan Marie said...

I would love to see it in real life. Maybe you could hang it at the quilt walk festival.

I love the dotty borders! I see you changed up some of the design too. I have mine on the UFO list to complete - the top is done, just needs quilting. Love your colors and the butterflies and dresden flowers are just so perfect with this colorful, whimsy quilt. Beautiful!

That is really cute. I love it when I actually keep up with a project and see it to the end. It's hard when it is a multi month or year long one, but they are so worth it. You have done yourself proud girl! :-)

Cathy said...

Absolutely gorgeous. Love that black and white dot framing all that yummy colour. xo

Jackie said...

It is such a beautiful quilt! This one is so you too. Where will it live?

Nanci said...

I love dots in any size. This really does it for me! Nanette, do not worry about length, it's always good to put on the back of a long sofa, mine are sometimes too short. They become lap quilts.

Congrats on a beautiful, timely finish! I love the polka dots. My family would love it if all my quilts were this long:) I would wrap up in it to read quilt magazines!

Thimbleanna said...

It's lovely! I love your colors - so happy, so you! And the black polka dots are perfect. Toss this one over a chair in your entry so everyone can see it the minute they walk into your home - it's so fun!
xo, Nan

So, I always save your blog posts, because I do google reader on my phone, and commenting is more difficult on my phone, and then your amazing posts pile up and sometimes I comment on the most recent one and read the rest without commenting. But this is so pretty that I have to comment and let you know I appreciate it. I hoope you're feeling ok and this doesn't make you think I'm a stalker! :)
