Simple Graces

Yesterday our humidity broke long enough for me to finish handsewing the binding down on a quilt I've been working on for a while.  It's from Kim Diehl's book Simple Graces, although the border is based on a Barn Raising quilt in the collection of the Vermont Historical Society.  I quilted the center and then added the border before finishing the quilting.  It was a lot of maneuver but I'm happy with the result.

The background is a variety of shirting which I love to use for applique.  I won't be making any log cabin blocks with 1/2" blocks for a while, though!

I really like that flower design and might still make it one day, I don't know if I have the pattern, I know I have one of her books.

Love Kim'a patterns and this one sure doesn't disapoint!
