Final seams at last

I sewed the final seams on this top last night.  I really pushed myself to finish even though I was tired.  I sewed the last 6 seams in one direction and then the 9 seams the other way.  It ended up 57" x 79".


I also cut another 12 fabrics for the zig zag quilt and filled in a few more of the gaps. 

Now I have to finish cleaning the basement for the art quilters' group that is coming on Monday so I will probably do some mindless scrap play tonight.

Nobody mixes those big prints as well as you do. Love it.

I also love your term "mindless scrap play"

Always love your color choices, and you are so fast!

It's amazing what you can do with lights and darks. This has been a great lesson on lights and darks rather than matching colors. I love this blog! Amie:o)

I don't think your scrap play is ever mindless. Your always create something specky.

Beautiful and I love how the zigzag quilt is coming along. I definitely want to make one someday. Just need to get to it.

Yay! A finish of that big part of a quilt is always a good feeling. And it is so beautiful. Hope you get quilted soon so you can enjoy it in all its glory!

exciting news= the new KF book is out. I pre-ordered one on Amazon, and received it on Wed. Hope you get a chance to see it soon. As usual, the designs and photos are wonderful, and the instructions are not.
Also, as usual, I am enjoying watching your quilts emerge. I have especially enjoyed your recent tips on color, etc.

It's fabulous -- all that lovely colour makes one want to just stare at the various fabrics for ages!

I do love the way you (and your students) have used color in these quilts, Wanda.
I've been reading your blog for a while, enjoying it immensely, and thought I should let you know.

This is magnificent! I love your work. This is so inspiring as I try to make my own first little blocks.

HollyM said...

Beautiful quilt! And I think it was the right decision to go with the dark in the middle. I'm a little late on that decision as I was away for the week.

"mindless: and Wanda do not belong in the same sentence!

Julia said...

Fantabulous! Or something like that!

Thanks so much for the lesson. It is the best and simpliest one I have seen on lights, mediums, and darks. I am really looking forward to your future posts and quilts.

Wanda said...

I don't know how you do it but ...YOU DO!!! You see things that I, for one, just don't. I'm so glad you do and that you share so generously!

Absolutely beautiful. I have some Kaffe Charms and I might try this idea when I get round to using them. Thanks for the inspiration :)

I love that you are showing that on the horizontal. Do you plan on keeping it that way?
