I am really excited to have the Quilt for Zoe finished and ready to gift to my friends tonight.
I was able to get it finished and photographed around town while the weather was delightful a bit earlier this week. You can see the hazy layer of smoke on the left in the photo just above the block wall; the Thomas Fire continues to rage on about an hour south.
The backing (Birds of Night in Slate by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics) compliments the colors on the front so perfectly. I was kneeling on a hill in our local park while waiting on the wind to die down enough for my husband to get the photograph…
…and you can see the tiniest bits of my knees if you look hard under the bottom edge of the quilt in the photo above. The pieced quilt top finished at 42.5-inches wide by 52.5-inches high, and after the first wash, the quilt is now 40-inches wide by 49-inches high; it has a delightful crinkle!
I used straight line quilting to add in a Fibonacci Sequence to the quilt. It goes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and then it repeats both horizontally and vertically.
I used my first Dutch Label for the quilt!
I have a pattern written for the quilt design that expands from baby, to lap, and even queen size. I am hoping to be able to release it in a few weeks, but I definitely want to have all the details triple checked before I publish.
