Pre-trimming threads and ironing, but here is my most recent quilt, made for a friend's wedding on Saturday.  I have been cramming to get it done, and thus, the subject line above.



It's foundation pieced, took eight lifetimes to complete, and weighs six thousand pounds, which is why it is dragging on the grass from the clothesline in this photo.

I based the design on a lovely quilt I saw in New Zealand Quilter magazine... unfortunately I didn't copy down the artist's name.  Sorry, karma!  Also, I think hers was possibly about a woman's right to choose or something?  And mine is about... uh... pretty.

Thanks for looking!  I am pretty chuffed about this one, even though it's got its flaws.

That is absolutely gorgeous!  I've wanted to make a quilt all summer, and keep changing my mind on it.  I can't seem to get inspired.  Seeing this, though, makes me want to make one all over again!  Awesome work!
