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.
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.
