Here is the finished front. I love how the pattern turned out and the mix of fabrics I hope Eric and Kalya like it. It is funny how all of the quilts have been so different even the two that were from the same pattern had their own personality's. This quilt was more meditative to make because it involved so much repetition with the stair pattern. I would like to try this quilt again but using really modern prints and see how that changes it. By the time I am done with my last quilt I am going to have a lot of scrap fabric to play around with.....then what?!
For the back of the quilt I choose one of the floral prints instead of the white that was recommended. I love this fabric and hope to use it again in the future. You can see the stair pattern that is created by the stitch in the ditch technique. Below is a close up.
It is always fun to send away a quilt and wait to hear back from the recipient, hopefully they will get it in the next few days. In the meantime I have been pre-washing the fabric for the next quilt and cleaning my studio. I snuck to the fabric store the other day to get ready for Cara's quilt or I should say Callia's quilt which is the last one in my project.
p.s. I am writing this listening to the sweet noises of Lily playing in the next room humming and talking to herself : )
