|Crown of Thorns made from West African basin and batiks|
Crown of Thorns...
Done! I got this quilt cut, sewn, quilted and bound in only two and a half weeks. And I just love how it turned out. Phil and Kim seemed to like it and that makes me a very happy camper. Phil took a picture of it with Will and me, last night, and plans to send it to the lady who gave him the basin, Juliet Contay. Living in Sierra Leone, I'm sure she has never even seen a quilt so it might be interesting to know what she thinks of this strange technique of cutting perfectly good fabric up into little pieces and then sewing them back together again. A strange practice, indeed!
For the quilters out there, I thought I'd share a couple of things that make my life so much easier. Most of the veterans of quilting already use these tools but, for the newbies, I thought you'd like to check 'em out.
