Poinsettia Finish

7 Comments

IMG_2920Last week I finished the Poinsettia Quilt, and I’m really happy with the result.  It’s 60″ square, with a bazillion 4″ curved patches.  The design is by Anne at Springleaf Studios, and she did it as a Christmas Quilt-Along in 2015.  I love her fabrics,  but I used what I had.

IMG_2921This is similar to my Spring Violets quilt from 2014.  It’s a Drunkard’s Path variation.  A regular Drunkard’s Path is easier to piece because the “legs” aren’t so exacting.  “Beach Drunk” is a good example of a regular one.

2017-11-16 16.31.37I used Superior Threads’ Fantastico in red and green to quilt the flowers and leaves, and Bottom Line in light green for the background and bottom thread.

IMG_2930The back is a wonderful green and white leaf print that I though was perfect.  So did Yuri.

And a nice scrappy binding!

Hope you are finishing something.
