Here is a quilt that I want to share with you that I eventually gave to my Dad as he loves it. This was free BOM available through Patchwork Planet that my friend Kathy and I kind of did together. If you can call doing something together when the people live ~200kms away from each other. As per usual Kathy streaked ahead and finished and I finished ....... later.
Most of the quilting designs on this quilt are free handed and because I knew that it was for Dad I could be as extreme as I wanted with thread choices. So I tried out complimentary colours and different freehand thoughts.
I really like what I did in the borders - I just marked the diagonals on the sashing side and the outer borders and feathered my way there and filled in with the sun thing when I had created the 'v' from the feathers. Whenever I see this quilt, I always run my hands over it and smile. It has gone to a 'good home'
Here are some bigger shots of the stack 'n' slash that I posted earlier. These are for you Swooze. There have been so many of these quilts made in the area where I live as they are very quick and easy and can be made using fat quarters and some border fabric, although Bev didn't do this with hers and also added an interesting stain glass window effect using a thin strip in the slashes.
