Yuri is delighted with this latest finish, and so am I. You can have your tiny calico prints. These are my florals!
This quilt is 54″ x 72″, 48 nine-inch blocks, so of course it pieced up in no time. It’s related to this quilt from last year. That has solid gray for relief, this does not. Some people find it to be too much pattern. I wouldn’t dress like this or anything, but it’s making my happy. It was not windy for these photos; Yuri is behind the quilt, pushing out the bottom.
Technically it holds together. Mostly florals, good variety of scale. Similar colors, but not completely matchy. I love how the orange trucks and barns pop on the Madrona Road fabric. Good value change.
Without the cat, the quilting shows up well in this late evening light. I added a second layer of batting under the light, feather quilted areas (Warm and White). The feathers are done in a peach Living Colors, and the straight lines are old rose Bottom Line, both Superior. The quilting took much longer than the piecing.
I like this photo because it shows how much greener everything is than my last finish. Finally!
Lastly, I did take this photo of one of my Oriole friends. They are a lot of fun to watch, but hard to catch with the camera.
