As much as I loved my other Purple Improv, I think I like this even better.
Usually I tend to quilt all-over designs such as feathers or paisleys. Smaller over-all designs are easier to manage with my standard sized Bernina. Since nothing else was “as usual” with this project, I originally decided to quilt an overall evenly spaced spiral.
And I thought – “meh.”
It took a run through the washer and dryer for me to really really know I’d done the right thing.
I did have to make one more final trip to the fabric store to buy enough Kona purple to bind the crazy thing – but adding a solid dark purple to my now-manageable purple stash is OK.
The total finish size is 48″ x 48″. I’ll install a hanging sleeve and make sure it’s labeled properly – and then on to my next project, which will be a low-contrast, more traditional pattern. (I think.)
All the best – Chris
By the way – I’m in the process of updating some of the pages on my blog, especially the “quilts” gallery. Please forgive the mess – and the temporary incomplete-ness!
