Pandora's Box Ready for Gifting

Pandora's Box is all done!  As I said in my last post, I quilted it last weekend and put the binding on it a couple of nights ago.

I used a Rural Jardin by French General jelly roll to piece as well as some yardage for the outer border.  I chose a tone on tone red fabric for the binding.   The design is from Pam and Nicky Lintott and I found it in the book "Jelly Roll Quilts".  The quilt finishes at 52" x 76".

I quilted Pandora's Box with some stitch in the ditch around each block and then on the diagonal with my walking foot.  In the border, I quilted straight lines and some wavy lines about 1/2" apart.

It was pretty windy outside this afternoon so I had a hard time getting some decent pictures, but I was super happy to be outside for photos after many months of having to take pictures indoors.

This finish will be given to its new owner, my beautiful daughter-in-law Deb, on Saturday when her and my step-son come over for dinner at the cottage.

Since this is my April goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes, I will be linking up at the end of the month.  I will also be linking up at AmandaJean's for Finish It Up Friday and at Erin's for TGIFF.

A Lovely Year of Finishes



Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
