And the big reveal!
I cannot believe that this is finally finished! Here I am - one very happy camper! This was taken just a couple minutes after I finally finished this!!
Here is a closer picture for you if you're inclined :-D
The Curve It Up Sampler by Sew Kind of Wonderful is finished!!! It is bound, hanging sleeve on and now, ready to show!
I finished it up at the cottage where I could sit and do the hand work and enjoy the process without getting distracted by other things - believe me, I can distract myself from hand turning the binding! ;-)
I LOVE the way that the filled cross-hatch looks - even though it was a LOT of work - I think that it was worth it.
The cross-hatch makes the blocks pop and gives some interest to all the negative space in between the blocks. I don't know that I want to do this again anytime soon - but - I certainly love the effect.
Even the back looks cool! I think that it looks like a whole cloth quilt on the back with the white on white. All the thread gives the blocks distinction on the back as well.
I think the dappled light coming through the trees looks really cool on the back of the quilt!
Now that this quilt is finished - I miss the process a bit. I never thought that I would say that but I do! I just finished some easy quilting on 3 charity quilts; and, I have a few easier projects to do for myself but then I think I will consider another intense project like this one.
So - what do you think!!??
