En Provence Quilt Finished

Yes, amazingly enough, I finally finished En Provence a week or so ago. I am so pleased with the finished product. I am sad that I will give it away, but it will go to a good home who will love it very well.

One thing I like about this pattern is that the edges are finished. By that I mean my hard sewn units are not cut off as you see in many quilts with weird edges. I like it that my stars have all of their points.

Also, I want to make another one. 😉 I am not sure when, but I do plan to make another one. If I select a color scheme I can start any time and use leaders and enders to get all of the units made. I haven’t done any sewing yet, as I haven’t selected a color scheme. I really like this color scheme, but want to do something different. How would it be if I reversed the darks and lights?

The back turned out to be very funny. Birds and lobsters? What was I thinking? It is definitely a good conversation starter, that is for sure.

I started this on January 10, 2017. You can see all the posts by clicking on the tag. 14ish months isn’t bad, especially when I know I took a long hiatus somewhere in the middle. Also, made most of this quilt using the leaders and enders technique.

    1. I went back and looked at Bonnie’s. Her purple and yellow are very prominent. I was trying to use colors I liked. I want to make the pattern again using some other colors I haven’t selected yet.

  1. Can you hear me applauding you? I did Bonnie’s Celtic Circles I think it was…took forever but they always look spectacular, don’t they? And your colors are really nice. LOVE the backing!

    I just finished step two of this year’s Bonnie Hunter quilt….Ringo Lake. I can’t share the details, as the pattern is no longer free. It sure is a Bonnie quilt though! lol Oh my, the piecing. I think it will look great when it is finished too.

    Thanks for sharing yours. I always took note of your progress comments, knowing what a challenge her quilts are. I am glad it turned out so nice for you!

    1. Thanks so much. Her patterns are very involved, but the result is so satisfying. I save all of the patterns when they are free and then decide, after the reveal, if I will make the quilt. I can’t wait to see yours.
