I just finished a quilt on Saturday. This is not what I plan to blog about usually, but it was a good excuse to see if all my mirroring thingamajigs work on my blog. So you get to see a quilt.
I’ve been calling it Autumn Throw, for obvious reasons. It’s not bed-sized, just 50″ square. The eight leaf/berry blocks are cut from a panel I picked up a while back. The five textured tan-colored squares each has a quilted motif in it, which unfortunately doesn’t show up in the photo (the texture you do see is the fabric print). The whole thing is hand-quilted, which is usual for me (I enjoy hand quilting — I do not enjoy wrestling elephants through keyholes, which is how I describe machine quilting).
I’ve had a falling out with the person I originally intended to give it to when I began piecing it (and, no, I’m not sure why I went ahead and finished it, but there you are), so I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it now. I’d like to give it to charity — to an organization that would auction it or otherwise use it to raise money. I have a couple of leads, but we’ll see. I’m not giving it away right away.
