This finish is perhaps a year and a half in the making. January 2014 I joined the Feathers QAL for the quilt designed by Alison Glass. The sewing commenced on January 3rd and I pretty much kept on target, having the top- minus the top and bottom borders – constructed by mid-March. I had a wee bit of trouble with the background chambray as there were many, many defects in the middle of the fabric. Fortunately I always purchase a bit more than they say that you need, so I was able to work around the problem areas. The feathers are Kaffe Fassett prints, as I am rather fond of them. Last fall I finally got around to getting it to Sue Bentley, longarmer in our guild, and got it back in January. S0oooo, you wouldn’t think that it would take me that long to bind it, but there you go….I finished the binding and minutes later went to the park behind my house for a mini-photo shoot. The dad and son fishing there were sort of wondering what I was doing, but …oh well! Here are my attempts at artsy shots….
A close up or two…yes, it is quilted with purple thread!
There you go, June’s goal done! Linking up with ALYOF – I was #82 of the goal setting party 🙂
