Yes! I beat my quilt deadline, though Barb might laugh at that since she still has to bind it! LOL This quilt belongs to- and was quilted by me. Also, it was lovingly designed and pieced by Barbara Kiehn of Sacramento, CA. The focal fabric was designed by Jason Yenter, In the Beginning Fabrics; it is his Floragraphix II line.
A question I often get is how long does a quilt like this take me to do? I started it on January 19th and finished it on Feb. 1st, 2009. Actually, after the show, I will reload it and add alot more work to it: more stitch-in-the-ditch, probably a new design in the medium green areas.
Here are a couple of pictures I took before it gets handed off to Barb:
By the way, I appreciate all your encouragement provided to me along the way. I know it probably got boring to see yet another picture of this quilt, but I wanted to document the quilting as it progressed.
Quick shout out to Barb, the designer and piecer. I’ve talked Barb into coming out with a line of her quilt designs, and I think she is going to do it. She has a new grand-daughter, born about a week ago, so congratulations are in order!
If you live near Sacramento, you may see this quilt on display at the Folsom Quilt Show from February 6-8, 2009.
Onto the next quilt now….
