Just a Peek

It's so close to finished...some hand sewing on the binding and then I can show the whole, gorgeous package. It's going to a trunk show tomorrow. I'm excited about sharing it and talking quilts with a group of like minded folks.
i can't stop looking at the quilting...on wednesday i'll tell you all about the quilter...it was the perfect collaboration between two artists.

I've been working with this set of fabric over the last week. Large scale prints can be challenging, but I really love this set of fabrics. I think I'm making them work.

Have a great week everyone. I'm enjoying every minute with my youngest. There's MUSIC in the house again! Thanks for checking out his song...you all are the best!

This WOW! quilting is in such contrast to the selvages *S* And I agree with other comments - this is very different from your usual quilting. It's one of your best, if not THE best.

Congratulations!

I know what you mean about collaboration with the quilter. I just got a quilt back from my cousin who is an absolutely artist with a long-arm. I was speechless.

And you fabrics are gorgeous! What is the one all the way to the left?

I can't wait to see the selvedge quilt in its entirety. What I can see looks absolutely gorgeous!

The quilting is fantastic. I can't stop looking at it either! It really gives the impression of circles, without having to piece pesky curves! I'm sure it will be a big hit at the trunk show.

Love the quilt. It is so gorgeous. If it were mine, I don't think I could stop looking at it either. Great accomplishment.
I know what you mean about the joy of having your kids come home. My home just vibrates with life when my boys visit.
Your sons music is great! My son loves music and loves to discover new artists so I forwarded the link to him.

Barbieann said...

didn't think I was such a fan of selvage's till I started watching this project!
What an awesome job the two of you have done! What an example of how scraps can be used to be so efficient and beautiful at the same time.
