I’m pretty sure that I could spend many minutes apologizing for my absence, but you aren’t here to read whiny stuff, so let’s get to the good stuff! I finished another quilt! Really. And it’s a wedding gift for a wedding that is not until July 15! I’m on top of it! I’ve handed it off to the bride’s parents to deliver so no one has to deal with it the day of the wedding. I think it is safe to post this because I don’t think that the bride pays any attention to my blog.
Yes, I’m pretty sure that this is my last finish for the quarter.
And which quilt was this? The 2014 Designer Mystery BOM! It’s not a bed sized quilt (well, maybe a twin), but the colors will look great on their couch I’m told. We have known the bride since she was five or six years old so she is almost family. Which makes her quilt eligible.
Amy and I originally decided to do this BOM together. (Hers isn’t done yet, but she’s been grandbaby watching.) I kept up with the blocks until about month 8 or 9. My original plan was to keep this one for myself, but I really can’t keep every quilt I make. I will run out of room very quickly. So.. a wedding gift it is!
I love the way this quilt looks. The setting by Edyta Sitar (who also designed the fabric) is stunning. All of the blocks were fun to work on since I like star blocks with lots of tiny pieces. Part of the setting process required a 13th block. I have never before made such large half square triangles or hourglass blocks either. There are several posts about this quilt if you’re interested in seeing more pictures of the quilt in progress. I’m just concentrating on the final project here.
