First finish of 2016! Okay, you might argue it should have been the last one of 2015 but I have really applied myself this week so no. 1 son can take this away tomorrow. Mind you, if he decided not to I wouldn't be too upset; I'd rather like this one for myself!
I had the usual mid-winter problem of where to take photos but figure the odd bit of wall is better than trying to do it outside.
My favourite little bit...
and the back...
This has ended up about 72 x 78. The original New York fabric was from Benartex, then there's just every black/grey I had, a real mix with everything from Kona to Oakshott to Doe to a piece that was a gift from a quilting shop near the Arctic Circle. The bright colours in the little squares across top and bottom are from a couple of Oakshott charm packs that have been floating about for ages.
I used a wool wadding and handquilted using a variegated Sulky 12wt.
Boy, am I happy this is done!
I'm linking up with TGIFF today.
