After three months of hand quilting, this quilt inspired by Anna Williams is finished! There was a LOT of stitching going on the last few days of 2010. A photo of the original quilt is published in the book, "Nancy Crow," by Nancy Crow.
Buffy gave me the idea to quilt it in red thread. I used #8 perle cotton and a sashiko needle.
I so enjoy hand-quilting!
Now for a preview of what's coming in 2011.
This is one quarter of the eyelashes quilt, otherwise known as "Pickle Dish" in Kaffe Fassett's book, Quilt Romance.
These are some old blocks, taken from a quilt top I bought at an antique store last summer. I'm thinking of resetting them like this.
And here's my 15 minutes play project, made from my basket full of scraps!
I've been part of blogland for six months now. And can't believe all the wonderful friends I've made! Everyone is so welcoming and supportive. I'm hugely grateful for your generous inspiration, scraps, blocks, advice and encouragement this year. Here's wishing you a very happy, healthy and creative 2011!!
