This is Plain Spoken from Modern Quilt Workshop (Ringle and Kerr). I don't generally quilt because I strongly prefer garment sewing.



There are about 20 solid colors - two of the oranges that I ordered were too bright and I left them out:


I don't have enough space to lay out the whole quilt in my apartment, sorry. Here is the whole thing, sort of:


It has wool batting and is entirely hand quilted (although not very well)


The quilting took four months. Not planning on doing that again!

Well, I machine stitched the top, at least. For the quilting, the outer rings of the circles took about 1.5 hours per each whole ring. Although I am pretty good at garment sewing stitches, I just can't do the hand quilting stitch, so a lot of the quilting was done with stab stitching after I gave up on my mutilation of the quilting stitch  I'm afraid that parts of the backing will eventually require repair due to the terribleness of the quilting stitch attempts....
