I have finally finished a quilt I started about 5 years ago. Sorry about the poor picture but we had rain all day today so I had to snap this one inside.
Every time I went to work on this quilt, I would discover I had "stolen" some of its fabric for other projects so I would have to rethink how to proceed.
That usually resulted in it getting thrown back into a bag and stored.
For the quilting, I did simple vertical lines in black thread then added detail lines in red thread and randomly placed circles and triangles.
I think it matched the vision of the quilt quite well.
I had quite a bit of fabric left over from this project and as I had been working on it for so long, I just couldn't bear putting it back in my stash. So I decided to throw together this scrappy quilt with the leftovers.
I had no plan when I started and placement of each fabric was dependent on how many squares I could cut of each fabric.
I really didn't think much of the quilt top after I finished it but I quilted it with an orange peel design with a little twist and fell in love with it.
Now it hangs in my living room and brings me joy. Isn't it great when that happens!
