Safe Haven FINISHED

This quilt took quite a while. It is the Safe Haven pattern by Thimbleberries. I do not know if it is still available. You might find it out there on Etsy or Ebay.

The blocks weren’t too bad, in spite of the applique, in which I do not have much experience. I rather enjoyed the variety of piecing techniques.

But the layout was a different story. The suggestion in the Block of the Month pattern was not to my personal taste, but I also didn’t have a better idea.

So it sat for a while. And then for a while longer. The problem was how to finish it without making it too long and narrow. Finally the idea came.

I added a narrow border around each block. Then sashing. Then pieced borders on the side. And a final border to finish up. The dimensions are now 84″ x 96″.

While the color scheme remains different from my usual preference, I love the results.

  1. Not my colour palette but it’s a beautiful looking quilt anyway. Well done on finally getting it finished 🙂

  2. Another job well done – I like your layout SO much better than the original! I especially like the borders you chose.
