Finished: Parcheesie Quilt


Bending Pins: Parcheesie Quilt Complete

 

I’m ecstatic that I’ve finally sashed this quilt and it has a home with my Mom! This is one of my absolute favorite quilts and certainly most ambitious, each block consists of 72 pieces not including the pieced sashing but it’s so worth it!

In fact I love it so much, I may actually make another setting the blocks on point.

Parcheesie-BackingPattern: Parcheesie by April Rosenthal of Prairie Grass Patterns.
Size: 71″ x 71″ This is not the finished pattern size, I didn’t have enough fabric for the border and it is now somewhat rare to find.
Fabric: Flora by Laruen + Jessi Jung & Kona White
B
acking Fabric: Birds & Berries by Lauren + Jessi Jung
Binding:  Kona Maise

Because I love this pattern so much I didn’t want to distract from it by using a quilting pattern so I simply stitched in the ditch using Superioir Threads Kimono Silk. I used Sharon Schambers’ You Tube tutorial for binding.

If  you’re looking for a challenge, I encourage you to try this pattern, satisfaction guaranteed! Purchase the pattern here: Prairie Grass Patterns.

I’m going to continue binding my Modern Mabel quilt today, happy Friday and have a great weekend and Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday!!

    • Thanks M-R but I can’t take credit for the colours, they’re from the Flora line by Lauren + Jessi Jung, their prints are perfect for this pattern because they’re so small and detailed. I hope to get more Birds & Berries before it’s all gone! ;D

    • LOL, yeah I know Avis, but they weren’t that difficult to make because the strip sets were only 18″ long, much easier than sewing a 42″ straight seam! 😀
