This quilt has been 2 years in the cutting, stitching and quilting and is one of those quilts that is going to be forever associated with a particular season of my life. Do you have those kind of makes - ones that take on resonances and memories as you work through them?
I enjoyed making a quilt of different sized blocks, even if those HSTs were the bane of my stitching times. The range from 36" to 6" blocks was fun, though I have to admit that near the end, I wished there'd been a few more 24" and 18" ones and not quite so many tiddlers!
As you can see, this quilt has had a professional touch from the awesome Trudi Wood as there was no way my abilities were going to cope with quilting all 84" x 96" of it on my dining table! As ever, Trudi has worked magic on the quilting, breathing life and flow into the blocks.
|Even with my friendly helpers this quilt is a biggie to squeeze into shot.|
With the hardest part contracted out, all I had left to do was bind and label it for a finish. So, hooray for another tick of the WIP list and a finish to declare for FAL Quarter 2!
