As you can see the side borders are wider than the top and bottom , it would have been much too long had I made them the same . You see these blocks were embroidered many years ago from a pattern my mom ordered from the newspaper I believe and there should have been a large embroidered emblem for the center with these blocks surrounding it in some fashion . Well the emblem didn't get embroidered so the time came to just go with what we had and this sashing choice by myself was to add inches to the quilt but also to add interest . The gold strip was her idea as the lettering is done in gold and the green was her choice as well as there are so many green leaves. I think the colours work very well to show off her embroidery, would you like a close up of the embroidery , sure you would I know i have had requests already . Okay here we go ...
Each province has a provincial flower and for Nova Scotia it is the very pretty Mayflower, the scent they give off is divine , unfortunately they are not easy to find and obviously only in May .
I won't show them all but here are a couple of more .
Aberta's wild rose
To learn about the other provincial flowers go here.
Here is a side view of the quilt, my mom wanted to have the quilt extend over the side of the bed so I took this photo to send to her to show how it looks .
I think it has a nice drop and she seems pleased. I am just happy to say this job is finished at least for now 😊
I am now working on my BOM for our guild project , I added some sashing strips today and things are looking great . I will share some of that later on but I wanted to stop in and share my flimsy finish . Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by .
