Lord of the Rings quilt

FINALLY! The blocks are sewn together with sashing between. The large dark space is for the recipient's name which will be quilted in. It begins with a J so that will drop down into the left as if it is lower case. I found the perfect font for this spot. 

I am thrilled with this quilt so far! Just needs two more borders and some backing... and lots of thread to quilt it.It will be about 67" x 80" and will belong to a real hobbit fan.


The patterns came from Regina Grew, however I changed the sizes for some of them (and the colors). It took a long time to piece it (the white tree is applique), but whose counting?!

Hi, Elsie!

Would you consider making me a Lord of the Rings quilt for my son? He is in college and is a lifelong fan. He doesn't have anything nice in his dorm room, and this would be incredible!

Thank you so much; your quilt is an inspiration!
