A finish.............

I finished the hand stitching on the binding of the Marcia Derse Stack and Slash quilt last night.  It is 53" x 67".  

I have another quilt started with Marcia's fabrics that I will be showing soon.


I was able to get one of Marcia's fabrics at a really good sale for the back of the quilt.















I borrowed the photo below from Laura Wasilowski's blog.  I saw Laura on Thursday at the International Quilt Festival.  Frieda Anderson was teaching a class so I missed her.  Laura was swamped with customers when I was there.  If any of you are going today, be sure to stop and see them.

The quilt is quite special! But even more special, right now, is your meticulous blog record of your previous s/s quilts. I was able to trace those earlier pieces and ---in your November 4, 2011 entry I found a link to Lynn Tyler's Patchery Menagerie blog, where she presents a superb tutorial about that block's construction. Thanks to her for the generous lesson, and to you for your fine blog archives!!

This is quite different fabric than what I am used to seeing on your blog but it is quite beautiful and exuberant too, in a more quiet way.

Congratulations on another beautiful finish. I bet you had a wonderful time at the Chicago show. Big quilt shows are exhausting, but always filled with lots of inspiration.

Would love to see the Chicago Show sometime! Will take some planning and saving. Great finish! Hope you got inspiration from all the quilts you saw.

This is another great finish. I really like the turquoise spots of color all over this quilt.

Another beautiful finish! I like this one, too, and how nice you got to visit with a friend at the Quilt Festival!

I love the fabrics. The quilt block suits them.
How lucky for you to be able to meet such quilters! Love their work.

After seeing your fabulous quilt I am now sure that I will select "Stack & Slash" as my project for my group's May retreat. I just hope it turns out half as good as your's. Thanks once again for all your inspiration in your posts.
