It was a long 3.5 years between starting and finishing this quilt but I’m quite pleased with it. This is the first quilt I’ve made that I wanted to make again, but in very different fabrics. I doubt I’ll do that soon but it is in the back of my mind. In the mean time I’m revelling in the feeling of having it finished.
This was the first block I made (above), mostly to see if I could. I enlarged this print (below) 1600%.
I had the perfect binding fabric all along. A true 1″ stripe.
I also submitted this to QuiltCon for consideration in the Modern Traditionalism category.
