This quilt has been waiting to be finished for a long time. I started this quilt over three years ago. Until now, it has been my longest outstanding unfinished quilt. And now it’s done! Yay!
I had the quilt top done in one weekend. I wish I could remember where the free tutorial was for the quilt top. It was easy and super simple. Three years ago was pre-Pintrest era and so I bookmarked the site. Three computers later and the bookmark is long gone. I have no memory of what the tutorial was called or who made it or anything. Sorry. If anyone knows, let me know so I can update this!
The quilt top remained unfinished for so long because I was afraid to quilt it. The fabric is Heather Ross’ beautiful Far Far Away line (the first) in double gauze. The double gauze was so delicate and I had to be gentler with it than the normal cottons I use.
And now I’m soooo happy that it’s done!
The back of the quilt was simple long horizontal stripes of KONA baby pink (I think) and a white with small pink polka dots on it (not quite pin dots, a little larger).
In the end, I free motioned the quilt on my domestic machine. The pale pink thread I choose was hard to see on the front on all but the purple blocks, so as a result I crossed my lines a few times simply because I couldn’t see them until I was right on top of them. I still like the randomness to it.
Lucky girl! And those snowy quilt photos rock!
