This has been the view from my recliner for the last two days. I don't know about everyone else, but when I finish a quilt I want to look at it. There is always such a huge relief and sense of accomplishment and pride. And as always I think this one may be my favorite. No, really.
Here is a view of it laid out on the living room floor. It measures 87" x 87".
The inner border is made from scrappy strips of purple and it is bound in one purple fabric. This is the leader/ender project I have been working toward for several months. I made it my main project in July.
This is the way it will look on my bed. Yes, this one is for me. I named it "Fired Up". Those that know me may get the hint that will always be there for me in that name.
Here is a view of the back. The two fabrics are the same pattern. They just are a light and dark version of it. When it became popular to make a scrappy back I was thrilled to join the band wagon. Buying a large quantity of backing fabric is always a huge expense. But being able to "make do" is so much better.
This is a view of one of the corners. It gives a view of my "mitered" corners and also of the scrappy inner purple border.
One big finish for 2012. More to come.
