Don't you love it when you are done, done, done? Quilting done after days and nights, binding on, ready to photo, wash and send off to the lovely recipient?
All except that one little spot that you see after you have put away the thread the foot and the quilting needle, after you've done your happy dance. Yep. Missed a spot. Or a circle. Deflation.
Think anyone will notice? Besides me, whom it will bother to eternity.
This quilt is based off a pattern by Julie of Jaybird Quilts.
It was windy so I had my son hold up the quilt for me, at 6' 3" he had to stretch. Which makes it perfect for the intended super large man.
The back, some Kaffe Fassett prints and Kona cottons, I think the mustard solid is from Northcott.
I like how the quilting shows up on the back. I quilted the straight lines with a walking foot, I went up and down the edges of each row and across too. I used FMQ for the bubbles and spirals inside each circle. I only quilted on the Kona Solid of each square.
I am holding on to this until Christmas, and someone will be very quilt happy.
Besides me, having this one done.
The front is Kaffe Fassett prints and Kona Nutmeg, I no longer see Nutmeg on my Kona chart, so they must have discontinued that one when the new colors came out in June 2012. The color is somewhere between Sienna and Amber. Really, I didn't know that some colors were taken out. I used Aurifil 40 wt brown in the bobbin and a 40 wt Amber color for the top (it is #2340, they don't show names on the Aurilfil card).
I will quilt that one spot before washing, kind of a pain, but I can't leave it hanging out there by itself.
Stay Calm and Quilt On.
