Last of the Quilts...for now :o)

Lastly but certainly not least is the quilt I started back in ...ummm March!  You might recall my post over at Sew WE Quilt (when is was known as Stash Manicure) where I demonstrated the construction of the piecing of the circle using the Dresden Plate ruler and the sewing in of the circle using Sharon Schamber's method of Piec-lique.



The entire quilt was free-machine quilted where I quilted petals from the centre of the circles and then did a large meander in the blue areas of the quilt.



I ended up making 12 blocks and set them together in a 3x4 setting.
This quilt was quite a lot of fun to put together as each wheel was different.  I think I wouldn't mind trying the design again but in scrappy fabrics and maybe even bigger circles...now wouldn't that be fun!


Until next time....

The fabrics you used in the tumbler quilt and this quilt are so pretty. I think my favourite of the two is the dresden quilt.

March, is that all? ;) I haven't quilted in over a year; sad. I think this is a lovely quilt; I have never seen anything quite like it. I do love the petal quilting!

Liz said...

Lovely colours Jane. I remember seeing these as blocks,it feels good to see a few WIP's go out of the door to new homes.I have had a week like that, finishes come like buses.

Tanya said...

Lovely quilt! Now I'll have to go back to your past posts and figure out how you did it! (I am wanting to make a rainbow block with lots of nesting curves. Do you think this technique would be a possibility?)

Katherine said...

It's a beauty, Jane! I remember that tutorial (and putting it on my to-make sewing list) and am delighted to see what you made with those pretty blocks. Seeing your finshed quilt may be the kick in the pants I need to get started on one of my own. ;o)
