I have been diligently working on this quilt. It is what I have been doing every possible moment to the detriment of keeping up my blog, Facebook, my laundry, etc! This one is special and while I have had it complete for about a week now, I could not post it as it is a gift for my Mother! Her birthday was April 27, so now she has it and the surprise is out!
It measures 65" x 65". The batik paisley is all from the same piece of fabric, the border and sashing is Kona Snow, I think.
I pieced the top in about 2 hours. The quilting, yes it is very dense, took about 12 tot 15 hours. I really didn't keep track but since I have been asked, I have tried to guestimate. When I am quilting, it is very meditative and I loose track of time. I find that very restful and really don't mind!
I love it, I believe she will as well! I free-motion quilted it with Isacord polyester thread on top and Mettler in the bobbin. No, I did not have a pattern, I just sat down and started quilting. But I love the swirls and think the set off the batik paisley very nicely.
We are off this weekend to visit friends. Should be restful, relaxing and fun!
