Country Inn

It has been a LONG time since I worked on this quilt top.   Lou and I did it as a stitch along, but of course she was finished much faster than me !    I got us the same background fabrics and shared some of my reds so we would have a similar quilt, and then we each did our own interpretation.   I have a few days off so was able to put it together finally, and today I will be piecing the back ready for the quilter.  
I left out the many Dresden plates, which I thought were too heavy for the border, and just added the central 4.  I found the pattern design for them too lumpy (so many seams in the middle) so I made them separately, cut out the bulky center and added an applique circle.

Of course Winston had to inspect everything !

Today I am working on getting some other (older) items ready for quilting !
