I've finally made it and my huge (approximately 2.10m x 2.30m/ 82.6" x 90.6") quilt top is finished - and photographed 😉 Good friends were so nice to let me baste it on their terrace, which is pretty much the only place where I could spread it all out.This is my first FAL Q3 2016 finish 😀 (original list here) It was actually quite nice basting it outside - it was hot all day long and then it finally cooled down outside. Inside it was still way too hot. But basting outside does have its downsides....The colors attracted some flying ants, so I was somewhat busy to swipe those all off again and again. And then the cat fell into the pond (1st time ever <groan>) and the shortest way back into the house went straight over my quilt top. I wouldn't have thought, that a cat's fur can hold THAT much water. So I had to finish basting a partially soaking wet sandwich before it got too dark outside.
Here's another picture, where I tried to straighten out the the dimensions:
Most of the fabrics are actually "scraps" from other projects I did before. In addition to that, two friends of mine raided their scrap bins for me. So there are a lot of memories attached to this quilt top.
And now it's time to quilt this little one 😉 I'll be quilting it on my home machine, with wavy lines. I don't quite know yet, whether it'll be free style wavy lines (organic lines?) or whether I'll be taking a wavy stitch from the machine. We'll see....
Have a wonderful week!
