Well, it had to alliterate, ok?
I have finished and bound my Gira Rosa quilt. It was designed by Michelle Marvig and published in Australian Patchwork and Quilting. I was lucky to grab a kit from Michelle so a)I didn’t have to think too hard to match my fabrics and b) mine looked like hers - which I loved.
Anyhow, here are the pictures.
On the grass – this shows the whole quilt – it is 60×60 inches.
Gratuitous shot over the chook pen. Please understand this is MY quilt and I would NEVER do this with a client quilt.
Flung over the clothesline for a better detail shot.
More detail. My quilting is indeed freehanded. Those feathers come out of my head, through my hands guiding the quilting machine and on to the quilt.
And showing the border. Look – the binding is on too. I machine bound this one – it is mine, mine, mine and to be used for snuggling under in winter.
I love my new quilt and as quick as the quilting seems to be, I started making this in, I think, 2009. Maybe even 2008.
