Let me start by saying I love this quilt – just getting that over with. But seriously, the colours are fantastic and everything came together really well from the quilting to backing.
That being said, this quilt took me over 3 years to complete – not because it was difficult but because it kept getting pushed to the bottom of my pile of projects. I would start working on this and then another project with an actual deadline would come up and this one would be pushed to the side. This is actually the second quilt I ever started. It has come along through the move to the new house, getting a dog, graduating with my masters and two new jobs!
This quilt is now in its home – on the bed in the spare room/ my quilting room. There is no way I could part with it at this point.
This quilt was made using a layer cake of Eden from Lila Tueller for Moda, the white fabric is from Connecting threads. I started this quilt from the tutorial at Crazy Mom Quilts for her Film Strip Quilt. Once I had all the blocks made and started to lay them out, I decided I like an alternating layout better. I haven’t regretted that decision for a minute!
