Vikings Quilt: It’s All Done!

26 Jan

I did it! It is complete and ready to be mailed out tomorrow! I’m in love with it! It makes me miss living in Minnesota a little! Not that I’m a football fan or anything, but it just reminds me of Minnesota. I’m super happy I went with gold thread. It really makes the sashing pop!

Vikings Quilt: First Blocks Are Done

I just finished the first blocks of the quilt, and I’m glad I added the tonal fabric to just kind of mix things up. I have 72 blocks to make, so I’m 3 down and 69 to go. I’m still waiting on a second Viking’s themed fabric to help mix things up. It has the actual Viking’s head instead of the helmet. I feel so Minnesotan right now!
