Alewives Row by Row 2016, almost done!

Isn’t this row just so much fun!  Rhea at Alewives Fabrics designed it and I just love it.   I was hoping to quilt it this weekend, but didn’t have enough batting.    So, as I have been a little behind in my quilting, I thought I would post it anyway.

I had a couple of choices for the border, but this one is truly lovely with a speck of that green in it.  Here’s some pictures of possible borders….

I liked this a lot but only had a tad left.  I wanted to save it for another project. 


I liked this one but it was a bit too busy.



This one won.   It has those dots of blue and green.  I just love it and have enough to do a binding with it, so it is the border.  Thinking of doing a binding with the blue sky or green inner border as a piping.  I have just enough fabric to do that!

    It looks great, Kathleen, and I think the border / binding fabric will frame it nicely. I hope you get the batting you need for it soon. 🙂

    This is a lovely little quilt, Kathleen. I'm rather fond of green so this ticks the boxes for me!

    That Row By Row is too cute!!! Love your idea to just frame it, quilt it and put it up!

      Thanks, Nancy! The row by rows can be very cute all on their own. I think this may go above the guest room door in our cottage….or get used on the dining room counter there… Too many choices.

    That quilt is so adorable! Love the border choice…I know it wasn't your first choice but it works well! Your piping idea is a good one. Can't wait to see this finished! Thanks so much for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss.
