Ta Da!!!!

Oh I am so happy to be loading a picture of this quilt top ALL SEWN TOGETHER!!!

I left the longest seams for last so I was dreading sewing them.  It finished at 79" x 103".  I am really pleased with it and really like those quirky triangles that I mentioned yesterday.  Somehow they help to showcase the center radiating squares made from shimmering triangles.  I needed this one done before Monday so my design walls will be clear for the art quilters.

I was playing with some piles of batiks and realized I had lined up (on the left) last summer, cool and pleasant, and this summer (right) hot and unrelenting.  I always seem to be putting my fabric in runs of value changes.

Your quilt is beautiful! It seems to move if looked at long enough. (but maybe that's just me) I think the batiks are great together. More inspiration!

Ooo, Wanda, that's BEAUTIFUL. LOVE IT!!

Hi Wanda,
The setting triangles really balance the quilt. And those interesting blocks that share the border don't look out of place at all.

Your up-and-coming batiks look yummy, too, as do the winding ways cut pieces. Fun, fun.

Take care.

quiltmom said...

this is one totally stunning quilt Wanda- I love how you start with a set of blocks and then come up with something fabulous with them. I am particularly fond of quilts that form an overall design rather than are blocky in look. It is one of the reasons that I love log cabin designs.
Thanks again for sharing another stunning piece.
Regards,
Anna
