Well, almost. Melody is pointing out that I have missed a bit…
This quilt started with a visit to the Art Gallery of Western Australia about 3 years ago, just before it was my turn to choose a block for Quilt Club Australia’s inaugural Bee… I asked for a Mondrian style block.
People came back with paper pieced blocks, improv pieced blocks and even one or two which had the black stuck on with a gluestick, which I discovered late in the day to my dismay – thank goodness for being able to FMQ to finish those bits!
And FMQ I did – and that’s where the madness in the quilt’s name comes in. It is FMQ’d within an inch of its life. You kinda get the idea here of how I divided up the negative space into blocks and FMQ’d each one differently. Yes, I almost lost my mind. All done in beautiful Aurifil 40 weight thread.
There are feathers of various types, including my favourite tooth-fairy feather, there are spirals, there are stipples, there’s free-motion ruler work… and there’s a guest quilt dog. Hmmm… Scarlett was pleased to get off posing duties for a change.
The border was a bit of a challenge. I went with triangles – I’m really happy with how that worked. The fleur-de-lis design and loop-the-loops are of varying quality – don’t look too closely! (And yes, there’s that missed bit.)
The unbound product on my bed, dogless.
So that’s a wrap for me! And here’s your linky!! Remember:
- link back to here or TGIFF
- make sure it’s a finish, not an ad
- visit some other party goers and say hi!
Jennifer from Quarter Inch from the Edge is my cohost today, so please say hi to her too!
