Finished Quilt TopMay 31, 2008 at 11:50 am | Posted in Patchwork, quilt | Leave a comment
I finally managed to get all the tiny bits and pieces assembled, so here’s the finished top in all its glory:
I really love that moment when everything comes together and actually looks like what I’ve been seeing in my mind a couple of months earlier! With this quilt, that’s definitely the case, at least on the big scale. I’m not a very accurate piecer, and it shows in places, but I think the impression this quilt makes when viewed from a distance will be just fine.
Now I only need to figure out how to quilt this, and I’m starting to have a few ideas of what could work. Quilting will definitely be done tone-in-tone on the big colour areas, since I don’t want to distract from the strong pattern that’s already there.
While looking for ideas for a quilting pattern, I found an interesting page on fractals I’d like to share. I had lots of fun exploring all the images on that site.
