The top is finally done.
8” blocks; 12×12 blocks= 144; it’s huge: 96” x 96”.
The block is from my Disco Balls pattern.
For almost one week, while I pieced it, I was worried that I wasted my time and my precious fabric . Lately I have worked so much with solids that I thought I lost my ability to work with prints.
So I was happy when the piecing was done and I could see the whole top.
I LOVE it!
Most of the fabrics are from the “Apple of My Eye” collection by Quilted Fish for Riley Blake; a few Kona cotton solids and a few other prints. I loved each piece of fabric and each combination.
More than aqua+red combination I love aqua +yellow.
I love yellow but I don’t have too much yellow fabric in my stash. Now it is gone.
A lot of patience was needed to sew the 144 blocks; I enjoyed to stack the blocks though!
There is something beautiful even in this picture.Of course, only quilters could appreciate it!
Next week – the quilting!
And these are pictures taken by my hubby this morning – the landscape from my window.
And he is our guest – the 9 year old cat of my sister Nina. The third black cat in the house. He was sick and we had to bring him to the vet daily, for 2 weeks. Now he is OK – enjoying sleeping on my quilt that was in Houston in 2008- what an honour for the quilt!
Now I would enjoy some hand stitching!
