I probably should have waited until tomorrow to post this (it's 9pm here, and I have literally just finished putting it together, so it's taken in dusky light - not ideal :oP) but I couldn't wait, so you'll have to bear with the dodgy photography.
My points are pretty good in the main part - aside from the Wandering Foot, which I needed to trim down to size, so I've lost the points in some cases (whoops!!).
I need to decide whether to border it (and if so what fabric to use) and how to quilt it. I'm toying between an all over design (since there is so much going on already) or going all out and quilting each block individually. It may be some time before I decide :o)
But since it's done, I'm rewarding myself by playing with this collection of pretties tonight (another crappy photo - didn't plan this post all that well, did I?).
Destined to become Tula's awesome Colour Blocks quilt. And ignoring completely the list of projects that I really should be working on...
Hope everyone has had a great week!
it's amazing!!!! So impressed :-D
So much work has gone into this quilt - and only you will ever notice the missing points! I think all over quilting would be a good choice ( my humble opinion for what's worth!). Thanks for linking up on my blog today. Cheers, Karen
It looks lovely Jess.. I love the fabrics you'll be playing with too.. I finished up a quilt yesterday and forgetting other things on my list and went straight to play with new fabrics too!
It looks incredible! There are so many blocks I really love in this quilt. I don't often love borders but I think this might need them. I know whatever quilting you chose will be fabulous.
Adoring the Tula too!
I think it looks fine! I have done the same thing and started a wall hanging for no. 1 sons room instead of what is on my list!
Woohoo!! I just love getting to the flimsy stage.
Your top is absolutely gorgeous! I hope you grow to love it now that it's together...
Fantastic F-Finish! I love how yours turned out! I can't wait to see how you will quilt it!
This is fantastic! I'd say go for a white border and then use scrappy binding with fabric from all the blocks!
Woohoo for finishes, and for rewarding play, especially with Tula :oD
Oooh! I like it! I think it would look good with a narrow white border, then a red (or purple) one and finally another wider white one! It is a really interesting quilt with so much prettiness to look at!
All of those gorgeous blocks together make for such a stunning quilt! It really makes me want to dig into my heirloom stash and make one too just like it! I'm also pretty excited about that stack of fabrics. :) So much loveliness Jess!
This is looking lovely! Merry Christmas :)
I lovethe randomness of it, well done!
