I am not officially part of the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Somehow I missed the info about it but I wanted to post my recent finish of which I am most proud. Please don't ask me how long it has taken me to finish this quilt, I won't tell!
I am most proud of this quilt because it is for my older grandson. His room is done in whales. It is all free pieced and done with liberated techniques. And to top it all off I hand quilted the whole thing! I had a lot of fun doing it, and it was my first hand quilted piece.
Here he is pretending to surf like his father used to, well like he still does. Isn't it amazing what you can do with a box.
This is his very tall father, also known as my oldest son. Notice the different blues at the bottom. Gwen would be proud. I used Tonya's letters for his name. It is meant to depict the whales swimming along the surface of the water and the other sea life in the deeper water below.
I did wavy lines across the bottom to represent waves.
This is the back. I ordered fabric for the back and when I was ready to put the back, the batting and the front together I discovered that I didn't have enough. I ran out to Hancocks and got this fabric. I absolutely love it, much better than what I had to begin with.
