Board & Batten QAL🪡 x 2

This quilt pattern is such a great design--made from charm squares--that I made 2 versions for the quilt along!!!
Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs has been hosting a QAL (quilt along) for her new pattern, Board & Batten. It started January 4th and runs through March 1st, when Cheryl will be hosting a quilt parade! Here are my two quilts!!!

Pattern: Board and Batten by Meadow Mist Designs
Size: 40" x 48"
Fabric: Charm Pack--E. Vive's Mix & Match Club 21 Contempo for Benartex
Batting: Quilters Dream

Pantograph: Butterfly Garden ⤵️ from Intelligent Quilting
Don't you love Butterfly Garden on this quilt?!!!

Love the movement in this quilting design!!! ⤴️
This was a great QAL and a super fun pattern to make!!! I highly recommend it, whether you have a charm pack or scraps from your collection! Thanks, Cheryl!!!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy


  1. Both are lovely quilts. I love how you pieced the backings. The pantos are great! I love them both.

  2. Two more beautiful quilts! Beautiful quilting on them.

  3. I didn't know about the QFK drop off at Wildflower - thank you for that info! Both quilts are pretty - are you keeping the blue/white one? It's my favorite!

  4. I love both of these. The indigo always is such a treat to see. I love the Buttercup quilting design. It is always fun to see what you pantographs you use! I will keep this pattern in mind as a great one for a lot of scraps in one color!

  5. Very neat quilt design by Cheryl. Your quilts turned out wonderfully!

  6. These are both lovely quilts, though my favorite is the brightly-colored one that you're donating. Bless you for that! I admire how you seem to so easy whip up a quilt - or two! - and make them with such precision. Your longarm quilting is beautiful, and make for perfect finishes. Great job!

  7. They are both so gorgeous, Nancy. It is definitely hard to choose a favorite.

  8. Great quilts. I love how different they look. I have been checking out this design for a while. Lots of great inspiration from your finishes.

  9. Same pattern but boy they sure look different! Nice work all around Nancy.

  10. It makes me happy to know that the charm pack you won from me went onto to become such a lovely charity quilt! These will make someone so happy. Thanks for sharing your quilts on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  11. Funny how the same pattern can look so different! Love how you quilted these, too! :)

  12. Great quilts! I am surprised how well I like the second quilting design - it is a flower but in a more modern and straight way. Great mixture ;)
