you are truly amazing and every time I look at my quilt I am in awe.
What am I talking about you say? Well yesterday I picked up my DNQTTT quilt from Helen Hayes of Noah's quilting. The quilt is large and I'm sure that Helen spent many many long hours on her feet working on this quilt. I think she said she used nearly 5,000 metres (maybe yards?) of thread. Helen's work is absolutely stunning and I couldn't be happier. This quilt is special to me, since it is my first "original" design - which means I reproduced an old quilt all by myself!
Unfortunately though, it's very hard to photograph because we chose the thread to match the background so closely. Nevertheless, I have a few photos, and when it is on the wall I will try to get some more. It's so big (90 x 108 inches approx.) that I can't get a good whole quilt photo.
Anyway, here it is - what do you think?
This is part of the centre.
A close up of the quilting.
Part of the side section.
I have only uploaded a few photos to the blog so it didn't take too much time to load. But if you click on the Flickr link on the sidebar you can see more.
So I have two quilts now that will be ready for the show in October. Phew!!
I have had a very "take it easy" kind of weekend. To be honest - traveling knocks me around, and after this busy couple of weeks I was aching. Ended up not taking any sewing - which was fine, since I had zero minutes to do it anyway.
So on to the last applique border for Phebe. Not sure if I will finish in time - we'll see.
I'm looking forward to spending a few quiet weeks catching up with blogging, sewing and family (not necessarily in that order).
Ciao for now,
