This quilt top is my oldest unfinished quilt and will be my July goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes (ALYofF.)
Here are a couple more views taken from different angles:
At the time I finished it, I didn’t have the confidence to even attempt to quilt something that large. It measures 68 inches by 96 inches. It was folded up and put away (and then after that spent three years in storage until our big move in November 2014.)
From the distance needed to get the whole quilt in the photos, it’s difficult to see the fabrics I used so here is a close-up of one of the blocks:
That floral print was the inspiration for the quilt and for choosing the Disappearing Nine Patch method to construct the blocks. I wanted a block that would showcase that beautiful fabric which reminds me so much of Hawaii.
On a recent trip to Port Huron, MI, I stopped into Joann’s with a 60% off one item coupon and was lucky enough to find a great fabric for the backing.
I would love to have this quilt finished before July 23rd so that I can show it off to our oldest daughter when she and her partner are here visiting from China.
To all my Canadian readers:
Happy Canada Day!
