It only took 3 years and this is done.
The blocks for this quilt spent 3 years on my design wall. I was not looking forward to putting them together as they were different sizes and shapes with no straight edges.
Even after they were joined and quilted there were still a few problem areas. I did some serious trimming and blocking to make this lay relatively flat. The quilting also helps flatten some of the surface irregularity.
The facings control the fullness on the edges.
I will have to say I did not really like the quilt before it was joined, quilted and finished.
Now I love it. It is quite amazing what quilting does for a quilt.
I think it also is successful because even though you may not be able to figure out my plan, there was a definite plan (formula) to the quilt.
If you can figure out the plan then the work is not as successful. Sometimes when a piece is completed I can’t even figure out what my plan was!
Yes, there was a For Never Plaid 1! It was started and finished 3 years ago.
