Really finished that is. I’m pleased with the way it turned out. Lots of pictures too, click on them to make them larger.
It is a large quilt, about 96″ x 96″. In the quilting of it I wanted to maintain the graphic angular aspects of the design. There is very little free hand work, it’s all templates, rulers and digital crisp-ness. I also only used two colors of thread, a gray variegated King Tut called Pumice for the outer diamonds and a neutral color of So Fine (#7007) for the inner. I originally wanted to use Superior Monopoly, but didn’t have the patience to figure out the tension settings for my machine. The digital designs are from Wasatch Quilting and a few came with my software. Each design had to be sized and placed on the quilt top and stitched out. I became quite proficient at it by the end of stitching this quilt. Now that it is bound and neatly folded, it will be making its way to Boston, for my eldest son’s bed.
Linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for “Can I get a Whoop Whoop?” this Friday. This quilt is done and I’m excited to get to my next big project.
