I am so glad I decided to finish this quilt. If you remember a while back, I shared a POST with you where I was quite discouraged about the quilting and how I just felt it did not have the look I was hoping for. Well, you where all right, and I have to thank each and everyone of you encouraging me to finish this quilt. Now that is blocked, bound and hung it looks good. Not perfect, but a lot prettier and I love the finished result.
As I was finishing up this quilt I got more and more excited to getting it done. All I needed was a break from it, having it lie in plain sight each day, looking at it, almost 'staring' back at me. And the more I really looked at it, I started seeing the potential rather than the flaws.
The pictures does not show it that clearly, but I love the texture and how the light falls on the directional quilting , it adds a shine all over the surface of the quilt. If you stood at different places, looking from other angles it looks different each time.
It is especially visible from the back of the quilt.
If you'd like to read up on the design process of this quilt you find it HERE. I am at the moment working on a pattern for this quilt, playing with different colour layouts. I treated myself with a very early Christmas present and bought the EQ7 program and are very eager to share it with all of you.
It is pieced and quilted on my home sewing machine. The finished size is 36½ inches x 45½ inches.
