I loved that I took the time (wow, 5 minutes!) to mark some circles on the white background and quilt those flowers between pebbles.
All the pieces were appliqued with fusible web.
To achieve the mosaic effect, I trimmed off a little from each edge of all the pieces.
If you remember this, now you know where they come from.
The quilting keeps the pieces in place. After the design was fused I made the quilt sandwich and started quilting. I tried to quilt as close as possible to the edges.
Usually, after weeks on designing and working on a quilt, when it is finally finished, I don't feel the excitement of the beginning anymore. No, it doesn't disappoint me. I am bored and tired of it, because the quilt was already stitched in my mind 10 times before it was actually finished.
I finished it one week ago and I kept it rolled. Now it's hanging on the wall and I have to admit it is a wonderful quilt! it's even more beautiful than I imagined it could be.
What do you think?
Finish it Up Friday.
