Then it began nagging at me. I bought some jelly rolls. They were calling to me. I joined the Kaffe Fasset Collective Facebook page....so much inspiration. Then I decided to "just begin".
All was going along just fine,
fun even, until I started to join the sort of semi-circle pieces to the ovals and then, heaven help me, add the squares and make them into dishes.
So on June 26 while binge watching Downton Abby, I put in the final stitches on the binding. I feel like I have reached a mountain peak and can see all the world below me. What an accomplishment. Along the way, I discovered New York Beauty Quilts. This will be my next challenge. It's like taking my notch up a notch. No fear this time, just reckless abandoned.
Finished size is 72" x 72"
I chose three borders. The first is a little 1" black to give it some definition. Then an irresistible mushy black polka dot on white and the final is a mottled orange batik. The silver polka dot on black binding completes the picture. I think this is my signature finish. I hope I'm not falling into a rut but I really love this on the edge.
A little sparkle on the back from the crumbs left over from paper piecing.
