My current favorite, this one was juried into Pacific International Quilt Festival 2006, where many quilters studied it close up and from farther back.
It's a big one. Queen size even. It was a lot of fun to make, and It took a while to be ready to sell it. Each of the darker squares is pieced, and many of the lighter ones are also.
It's made from two inch squares of fabric----but the dark squares, and many light ones, are made by sewing even smaller pieces fo fabric together.
These squares are two inches, one and a half inches when sewn into the quilt. It's a 4-patch block, but I used a bit differently. Some very experienced quilters have taken a little while to figure it out.
Measuring 83"x105", or 7 feet 1 inch by 8 feet 9 inches,(211cm x 266cm) it's big enough for a pillow tuck!
The quilting topstitching pattern is non-traditonal and was inspired by skeleton keys: there are 5 keys hidden in the quilting thread.
The quilting is in many different colors of glossy rayon thread, not only on the top, but in the back. I used white cotton for the backing so the quilting pattern is very striking. It's densely quilted for long wear and to be interesting to look at if you are in bed underneath it. All my quilting patterns are unique, I never buy pantographs.
It comes in it's own new pillowcase. Machine was, tumble dry.
