I am thrilled to announce that Wonky Stars is finished! I am so pleased, other than the fact that I will now have to send it off to a new home and a huge part of me wants to keep it for my selfish self. But I won't. It had a purpose right from the very beginning and that purpose is in Finland. A new home awaits.
I utilised Helen as my assistant to hold up the quilt outside so I could get some photos. There was a height problem.
We stitched positions and Helen became the photographer and I became the assistant.
Here it is in more close up.
I have had prior discussions about why I like this quilt and the fact that I am pleased with what I have created so I am not going to repeat myself. I know that the person who will be getting this quilt loves it so it is going to a good home. Here are a variety of shots of it -
Plain white, other than that one scrappy strip.
White on white quilting, other than the perle stitching around the stars.
|It measures 54" x 45.5"|
(134cm x 116cm)
|Each star has perle cotton hand stitching around it -|
in a thread colour to match the star.
|The scrappy border and backing strip is 4.5" wide.|
|The white on white FMQ quilting highlights the border and |
works around each star.
|And scrappy binding was the only way to go to finish it off.|
I have officially completed another project. And now I sit here in the quiet. Because I am the only one home. John is doing his usual having to work away. The girls have gone to Brownie Camp. Until Friday!
Do you think I will last that long without them? I am going to go and do some sewing and contemplate it - in the quiet.
