I have been quilting for over 2 years now, but I have never made a quilt just for ME, before now!
This quilt was started in 2012 as a Row Along with Lori Holt. Every one/two weeks we got a new row to make. In the spring of 2013 I assembled the rows and attached the border. The back was pieced and the cute Bee Block attached, this can be seen in a later picture.
I started quilting it with decorative seams in between the rows, but then I stopped... I don't know why I just stopped, but the project was put aside. Last month I joined a UFO-busting project, and one of the projects I chose was this one.
There was not that much work left, but it is just the treshold to step over! Last weekend I finished the quilt, and here it is on a sunny, cold day in the forest:
The quilt is twin size, and it is basically made of scraps. If you click on the label "Quilt Along" on my side bar, you can see the different steps in the process.
In the nice late-winter lighting you can see the quilting. A decorative seam in between the rows, and then slanted parallel lines using the walking foot. The wind did its best to mess up the picture.
Here is the back with the Bee Block which I used as the label. But the block is so nice; maybe I will make a whole quilt with these ones?!
This stack of timber just begged to be used as a quilt display!
The last picture was not meant to be taken. I walked on my way home when I came upon this over-turned tree. It went down in the storm during New Years.The quilt was thrown over what was left of the railing, and together with the tree it creates a dramatic display!
There is a steep drop next to this path, and the tree is just resting its top on the rocks to the right of the walkway. The poor tree had very little soil to grow in, and it couldn't take the tough winds. But, that's nature!
Keep on quilting!
