Alewives Row by Row 2016, almost done!




Isn't this row just so much fun!  Rhea at Alewives Fabrics designed it and I just love it.   I was hoping to quilt it this weekend, but didn't have enough batting.    So, as I have been a little behind in my quilting, I thought I would post it anyway.

I had a couple of choices for the border, but this one is truly lovely with a speck of that green in it.  Here's some pictures of possible borders....

I liked this a lot but only had a tad left.  I wanted to save it for another project. 




I liked this one but it was a bit too busy.





This one won.   It has those dots of blue and green.  I just love it and have enough to do a binding with it, so it is the border.  Thinking of doing a binding with the blue sky or green inner border as a piping.  I have just enough fabric to do that!

  1. It looks great, Kathleen, and I think the border / binding fabric will frame it nicely. I hope you get the batting you need for it soon. :)

    1. Thanks, Nancy! The row by rows can be very cute all on their own. I think this may go above the guest room door in our cottage....or get used on the dining room counter there... Too many choices.
