Quirky Finish

TA - DAH!!!

It's DONE. The 2017 BOM from Helen Godden (quilter goddess).

It was all painted blocks. No piecing!
This was a first for me.

Each block was traced, painted then quilted (on my sit-down!).  The blocks were pieced together and sashed.  THEN - I quilted it again on my Handiquilter ... standing up.

The backing fabric was old and in the stash.

hmmm ...
I don't seem to have a picture of the back.  It's animals. You can see a bit around the label.

And here it is ...

As often happens ... the colors aren't nearly as vibrant in the pictures.  This is a beautifully visual quilt.  The paint is shimmery. 

I learned a lot. Somethings I would change if doing it again.  
It was such a fun experiment!

2 finishes in 1 week!
I'm on a roll.

Love the quilt. I would love to try something like this myself.

It's beautiful Mary, Kudos to you on finishing but also stepping out of the normal so to speak, an area I keep trying to do myself.
BTW, If you're selling the used pattern, I'd be very interested.
