The Local Quilt Top

I finished the final block for this quilt during a guild retreat last Saturday. On Sunday, while sewing with some other ladies who are working on this quilt, I finished the top. I told a lot of people this, but if the last block had been the first one, I probably would not have finished the quilt. Those trees are BRUTAL!

But I absolutely love how the top turned out. I left off quite a few of the borders in the pattern because I think this is going to be a wall quilt. I have to remove all of the paper before I quilt it or have it quilted. I’m inclined to have it quilted since there are so many seams in some of the pieces.

As a reminder, this is The Local Quilt by Carolyn Friedlander. If you like to paper piece and want something a little more challenging, then I absolutely recommend this pattern.
