Okay, I know, only a quilt top. Not REALLY finished. But it's a step in the right direction.
This was SO much fun to make. I love it's wonkiness. I have big plans for the quilting process and can't wait to get started. Imagine LOTS on wonky concentric circles of quilting, echoed with couched fibers. Can you see it? I have a very clear picture of the finished quilt in my mind, something that doesn't happen to me often. Usually the quilting is the part of the process I struggle with - what thread to use, how it should look, how heavy should it be. But this quilt is telling me loudly and clearly what to do next. And I'm listening.
When I first finished the quilt, I decided it needed a bit more height, but I didn't want to add another row of nine patch blocks because I didn't want a square quilt. I had a pile of little pieced squares left over though, so I added a row of them at the top and another row at the bottom. I like the way they continue the design in a scrappy way.
