Even though this quilt isn't finished, it's my very favorite so far. That's really hard to say about just one quilt because every quilt I've ever made has been a learning experience. It's just that I've learned sooooo much making this one.
I admit that I was terrified of paper-piecing before I started to make this quilt. And, not just a little bit. I didn't paper-piece for a number of years after the technique was introduced. That's really not like me so you know how afraid I was. For one thing, my mind doesn't automatically work the way paper-piecing requires, but I've overcome my fear and now find it rather challenging and then rewarding to complete a block/quilt. This will be my first entirely paper-pieced quilt when it is finished.
You'll notice there is a space for another block. I've completed several more blocks than show in this quilt but not the one for this space yet. I'm going to put one more row around the entire thing. I just thought the photo looked better this way for now.
I've also used many of my own hand-dyed fabrics in the making of this quilt. That's another departure for me since I'm not overly fond of "solids" or fabrics that "read" solid.
And, even though the size of this quilt will be manageable for me to quilt if I want to, I've promised it to Jackie. Once I saw the quilting she did on a customer's New York Beauty quilt, I was hooked. The problem is....she may have to wait a while before I get it completed! :)
