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!
Another shout out to Pat Campbell. She designed the lovely stencil motif used in the light center of the quilt and it may be purchased through Quilting Creation Intl. Thanks, Pat!
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….
