To be truthful, I never thought this top would get finished. It was definitely a test of my patience and I'm a bit surprised I stuck with it. It was made using the Ballerina pattern made by Jaybird Quilts. If you follow the pattern, the pieces go together beautifully. Unfortunately, I miscut a number of my blocks so the entire quilt had to be reworked so the blocks would fit together.
Not all the points come together as well as I like them to be but once it gets quilted and laundered, it will be less noticeable. Right?
I really like the fabrics in this quilt top. I mainly used Jason Yenter's Winter Solstice fabrics and back filled with some fabrics from my stash.
This will be a Christmas gift so now I need to get it on my quilting schedule. Any fun ideas on quilting?
Previously this year, I had quilted a quilt from the same pattern for a friend. I like the texture of the straight line quilting in a few of the swirls. The quilt above is far busier and I am not sure the quilting will show much.
Too many decisions! Thankfully I have a few months to figure it out.
