I just noticed that I haven't blogged the quilt my sister in-law had me make this summer.
She was building a new house, and needing a quilt to hang on the wall. She was a quilter long before I started, and hand quilted many of her beautiful tops. But she decided there was no way she would have time to make another one, and asked if I could do it.
I've posted some of the process photos - this is the Fig Tree pattern she had chosen, along with the pretty Riley Blake fabrics.
And talk about a process!
Large piles of trimmings were generated in the making.
I wanted each diamond to be perfectly square - both vertical and horizontal.
The process involved a couple of rulers and lots of trimming, but I didn't mind. I love lining up points and trimming things just-so.
Then those nice diamonds were fun to join together.
After talking it over with my sister in-law, I decided to stipple the outer border and into the setting triangles. Then echoed both edges of the inner and outer diamonds.
This gave me about a million ends to weave in, but the final look was awesome.
I could look at those points all day :)
I'm still thrilled at how well my new Horizon kept everything lined up.
The whole quilt.
Got to see it hanging in the wild when we visited her at Thanksgiving, that was cool.
