This quilt was a gift for my aunt and uncle for Christmas. I made it following this tutorial. I love that big blocky look, but I I'd been taught quilt pieces could only be the width of your hand or smaller. Now I've made this quilt I feel comfortable working on a bigger scale. Anyways, on to the pictures!



I wish I'd taken more time with the photos -- I just took these with my iPhone and the colours are off, especially in the paler fabrics, which are not nearly so white. The fabrics for the star were all from Liberty of London and mostly Kaffe Fassett prints. I went to London in August and though that store is unbelieeeeeevably expensive, I had to get some fat quarters and off-cuts as souvenirs.



With my foot to show some sense of scale. Each square is 18"x18".



The back. You can see I didn't quilt it densely at all. I love that look, but I've been having a lot of trouble with puckering lately. I quilted the plain corner squares into eighths.



All folded up and ready to be shipped.



A closeup of the label. I embroidered it all myself and learned a lot of new stitches. T and T are my aunt and uncle's initials. It's a Sublime Stitching design.
