My last post showed it half done.
A few days later all the blocks were finished and ready to get put together.
It was at that point it was decided that a King Sized possibly wouldn't be large enough so I decided to sash all the 24" blocks. Along with a border the quilt now measured 120" x 120" and I had to use the Yoga studio floor to sandwich it.
Anyway on to the quilty pics.
I quilted diamonds in white in the border and FMQ'd around them, also in white. I then quilted a feather motif in each diamond in pale blue.
The sashing was quilted in diamonds again. I used a darker, variegated thread and left them empty.
And now to the blocks.
I'd drawn out a rough quilting doodle to help me.
The idea was to stitch in the ditch all the seam lines. I then left the blue fabric alone and just concentrated on the white background fabric.
I used a combination of white and a variegated pale/medium blue for the motifs
The effect is of shadow stars dotted in amongst the real fabric stars
And with thanks to my yoga buddies for holding the quilt up for me,
The finished quilt, bound in the same blue as the sashing. Its off on it's way to it's new home tomorrow.
If I ever mention that I'm going to do another Super King Sized please feel free to slap the stupid out of me.
