Well, now! If I actually go down to the longarm room and load up a quilt it doesn't take long at all to get it quilted and bound. But I DO have to GO DO IT!
I did get sidetracked on my way to do this one and ended up sorting and cleaning out a drawer of strips and smaller scraps. That done, I got back on track and set to work on quilt number TWO of the 12-quilt line-up.
The original quilt that this is based upon hangs in the library on the campus of Motlow State Community College in Moore County Tennessee. I took a photo of it years ago when I was visiting family and then made up my own directions to recreate it.
In showing it to peers online, I have continual questions about block sizes, unit sizes, Accuquilt dies that could be used... So I wrote a full set of illustrated directions for it giving both Accuquilt and rotary cutting directions in 5 different sizes!
Mine is made entirely of scraps - with a different fabric for each of the leaves.
I used a leaf print for the border and quilted with a feather edge-to-edge pantograph using yellow thread.
For reference in scale, this center block is 15 inches. Entire quilt is 52 inches square.
Still deciding where this quilt will end up.
