Indigo Challenge and H2H Friday

My Indigo Challenge Quilt has not left the wall for some time now. June is one of two busy months for me at work -- so glad July is here. I am off today and on my way to our Guild's workshop for "sit and sew" time with the gals. I will stop off at the Quilt Shop for a border -- I hope she has an Indigo, because it just needs another border.

I will be linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times to show the Indigo after I add the border, and maybe a sneak peak of the quilting. Do you remember the "Orange" quilt? I finished quilting and now I am "picking". I started something new and became better the more I quilted, so I am going back to fix a few areas.

Here is the back of the H2H Quilt -- all quilted, bound, labeled, washed and ready to mail. Special Thanks to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for hosting this worthy project and to KatieQ for the fabric exchange.
The simple pattern is from the 2007 "Quilt Pink", in the Better Homes and Gardens, American Patchwork and Quilting. I have made SEVERAL -- let's see --- the Red/White/Black, a Green/White my sister somehow has now, two Orientals, and two Black and Whites. Did I mention that I really like this pattern. AND thank you hubby for helping to stage the quilt.

Love the H2H quilt, Jamie! I can't wait to see how the indigo quilt finishes up... I think you are right... one more border, perhaps a little wider, will help it to play better with the size of the interior. Great work!

I love the quilting on the H2H quilt, Jamie - very very pretty! And the indigo quilt is fabulous, only to be made better by another border!

Whoop whoop!!

As always, your quilts are stunning. I am glad to know what the name of the H2H quilt pattern is. I have seen that even quilted a QOV made from that pattern. Now, I can get my own!
