Yes! That's 2, I said TWO finishes this year!
and I might ask you to spot the difference!
I give you Carolina Christmas
aka the Monster Quilt!
finished, done, and on the bed!
Sorry, it was dark and no time for gratuitous, posing shots!
I started this one back in November 2009, designed by Bonnie K Hunter as one of her Mystery quilts, and in true Bonnie style, lots and lots and lots of little pieces. To be fair, the smallest piece is 2 1/2" so not tinsy winsy.
I got it to almost flimsy back in 2010, with the centre done, and then New Year 2011 I decided it's time had come. I set to with the aim of finishing it.
Finish the top I did, and I loved it so much I had to quilt it straight away! No hanging around the studio with all the other tops for this baby ... no sireeee!
With a serious dose of free hand feathers all over, with Superior King Tut thread on top and Superior So Fine in the bobbin, I am thrilled with the results .
So back to the spot the difference ....
somebody may need a good talking too!
