I’m quite pleased with this quilt. Although the piecing is simple, it didn’t happen quickly.
All of these fabrics have 2-5 layers of pattern on them. Some of them began their journey 25 years ago.
A lot has changed in the way I dye fabrics in the interim.
Interestingly enough they all reached perfection in the same dye pot…something that has never happened before.
Almost all the quilts I have been finishing recently are faced, rather than finished with a binding. It takes more fabric and more time. I do whatever works best for the piece I am working on. I find I am even getting better results with my facings than I did a few years ago. It’s all in the method and way I handle the layers of fabric. The corners are the greatest challenge.
Now all I have to do is name this.
