First, for crazy quilters out there, I would ask that you not pin, re-post, or otherwise share pictures of this project, as it will be in a publication early next year. I am only including one picture to verify (for our FAL peeps) that this item is, indeed, finished. After the publication next February, I will share more pictures and details. Or maybe just point you to the magazine, LOL.
|It looks a bit wonky in this picture, sorry.|
This was the #1 item on my 4th Quarter FAL list, which you can see HERE. And now I am done with 2 out of 10 for this quarter! I hope to have another finish later this week.
It was inspired by the vintage needlepoint in the center. The purpose of the colors of the block fabrics and stitching were to harmonize and accentuate the center, not to compete with it. That’s not to say you aren’t supposed to look at it, LOL, but the eye goes to the center first as it should! It finished at 30” across by 31.5” down.
It is intended as a throw or wall hanging, but I will add a hanging sleeve if/when I sell it in my Etsy shop, depending upon the purchaser’s preferences.
Thanks to Adrianne and all her minions (hehe) for putting together the 2015 Finish-Along, and to the sponsors who provide incentives and prizes!
