Here it is, my last quilt finish for 2015!
This quilt was made using some Bollywood Bliss panels given to me from a friend. She also included some of her leftover fabrics in pretty jewel tones so I just decided to put them all together into a quilt.
Once I fussy cut out the panel squares, I framed each of them with a thin strip of fabric. I then framed them a second time in a different fabric - but this time I offset the center by framing them in two different widths of fabric.
I actually did this for a reason. Some of the center panels had to be cut to differing sizes so by offsetting each block, it hopefully hides the imperfections that might have been seen had I lined everything up.
I still have some of the leftover panels which I have been turning into a few more pinchsions.
They have been fun to needle turn applique on the cold, rainy evenings we have been having.
I had made finishing this quilt my December goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes with Sew BitterSweet Designs. I have been participating in this event for about two years and am sad to see it ending. It has been a great way for me to keep focused on finishing those UFOs that get set aside for one reason or another.
