Rarely do I make something that I am as happy with as I was with this lovely. Now that it has flown the coop and landed in Canada, here are the details..
This was something I designed, breaking out the EQ7 and taking it for a spin. It was probably the first time that a design I had in my head (at the proverbial 2am) actually made it to the program and then to fabric without too much in the way of change. The image I had in my head, that was what I saw at the end when it was all done.
It was hand pieced and machine quilted and used a range of Kona solids (again something that I had always avoided, don’t know why). I think that the element of the whole quilt making process that I have underrated the impact of is the actual quilting bit itself.
While I quilted this one with my tried and true straight line quilting, I think that next time (and I am planning a bigger version of this) I will do something to emphasise the points in the quilt.
So there we are – finish two for the year.
