It's a quilting miracle - 2 finishes for January! This quilt has been on the list for a long time. It was started in 2013 with Barbara Brackman's Grandmother's Choice quilt-along. I made 2 sets of blocks. One set was done in shibori and this set was done with symmetry fabrics. After I finished the blocks I realized that I had created quilts for each of my Grandmother's. The shibori one would have been the favorite of my maternal grandmother and this one would have been absolutely loved by my paternal grandmother. It's been waiting since about 2016 to be quilted. I recently realized that this quilt belonged to one of my cousins and that's what finally motivated me to finish it.
I'm so happy to have this quilt done and to know that it's going to the right home. Go over to the Gallery to see lots more photos.

This quilt looks like a lot of work went into each block. I applaud you for totally finishing it, now everyone can see the details you created.:)

I hope you have shared this photo with Barbara Brackman. She will be thrilled to see it. She is doing another Grandmother's Choice this year on Facebook and I have seen several finished quilts from the last time but none as lovely as yours.

Your quilt is so amazing! The fabric and color choices make this quilt more than just a sampler quilt. I’m glad it’s finished and not in a UFO pile.
