I cannot believe it - the quilt top is finally finished!
It is so big that it´s hard to take a photo of the whole thing. :-)
(it measures 67.5 x 109 inches or 1,71 x 2,76 m)
I must confess that I "cheated" a bit in the end. I sewed the white border pieces togehter by machine, and then attached the long border strips to the top by hand. I was a bit fed up by all the white pieces in the end and only wanted to finish it.
Here´s one corner. Instead of normal hexagons I drafted these border pieces to get a straight edge.
And this is how the half flowers look now.
I worked on this top for so long that it is hard to believe that I´m really finished. I almost feel a kind of loss - what will I sew this evening in front of the TV??? :-)
I enjoyed One Flower Wednesday so much, and I am still not fed up with hexagons, so I decided to do another Flower Garden quilt.
Look at this antique beauty! Isn´t it amazing?
Martha from Q is for Quilter and me decided to both make such a quilt in a little sew-along. So I´ll have to show some new flowers soon! Martha, as soon as my new fabrics arrive, I´m ready to start! ;-)
Now I have to decide what kind of batting I´ll us to quilt the lavender flower garden. Is anybody here who tried the bamboo-cotton batting? My patchwork shop recommended this to me, but they had no finished quilt to feel and look at. So any hints would be helpful!:-)
