I’m so glad to have a fully functional computer again! Expect about a million pictures between now and,well… FOREVER.
These quilt pictures are the pieced front and back. The borders and binding are not on in these pictures, and the quilt is currently in my quilting hoop for the actual quilting. I’ll be posting final pictures when the quilting is done. You’ll be able to see the quilting detail, the borders (which are the same blue-green that are around the center square) and the binding in those pictures.
I had a pattern in mind when I original cut strips down and when I laid everything out for the pattern it just wasn’t working. So I sat with the pieces awhile, obsessively rearranged things, sewed a little and ripped some out until it came together. I settled on keeping like colors together in each triangle then putting the different triangles together to make dark or light squares. I was trying to find just the right way to use Gardenbug’s fabric, and this was the perfect display.
INDIVIDUAL BLOCKS ON THE FRONT
THE CENTER SQUARE
The back was a different story- putting everyone’s muslin blocks together made for an interesting jigsaw puzzle. You may notice that at the top of this panel the edge is not even- I promise it is now! Some blocks were sent in a slightly bigger or smaller size than others, so piecing this was interesting.
A FEW CLOSE UP SHOTS
And this is where I currently spend my evenings- quilting on the hoop.
