A Gorgeous Quilt – If I Do Say So Myself!

This is the quilt that suddenly moved to the top of my list of quilts to finish.

It is the perfect quilt for Jessica’s room.

The quilting is finished with the exception of the triangles on each side. I have a pattern designed for those areas. It is not so easy to mark a quilt when the batting is already in place, especially wool batting.

Once it is marked the quilting should not take long. I am not sure if I will be facing this or adding a matching binding. Bindings are so much easier and I think it will stabilize the edges better. Of course I will  add a casing at both the top and bottom so it hangs perfectly.

It will finished approximately 62 inches square.

Oh that is a gorgeous quilt! I can't wait to see the quilting completed.

Wow! Judging by the geometrical detailing, I can see why it would be something that might take long. Considering what a perfectionist I would want to be for a quilt so magnificent, I would have taken a seriously long time to finish it! It's really stunning, Kay, well done!

STunning- I love how it seems to be lit from within.

Absolutly beautiful.

Really lovely. The colors are beautiful and I love the pattern it makes.

Amazing! I could never have visualized how the the graded colors would look so I would never have come up with such a stunning quilt. Maybe you should consider making a pattern and selling it. It is so very different from most geometric quilts.
