I did a little happy dance earlier this week when I finished a quilt that has been a WIP for far too long!
The fabrics are from a collection by Kathy Hall for Andover Fabrics which was released in 2008. The designs are woodblock prints made with vegetable-based dyes. I started piecing the quilt in late 2011 and put the finishing stitches in the binding this past weekend.
My local longarm quilter, Cindy Braiwick, used an all-over paisley-like design.
I didn't get a great photograph of the quilting, but I thought you might like to see the backing fabric, a beige background with gold-ish script handwriting.
The finished quilt only measures 54" x 54". I wish I could've made it bigger, but I didn't have any more large pieces of fabric to make the snowballs. The pattern is still available on the APQ website - it's great for showing off fabrics without cutting them into small pieces.
The good news is I have lots of scraps,
including a bunch of bonus triangles, so there's definitely another Vegetable Dye quilt in my future!
