AHIQ - share your improv #11, and a finish

This is my Wall quilt, done dusted.






I started this on 1st June 2015 and finished piecing on 14th September.
Quilting started on the 29th May this year and it was finished on 24th July. 

It is not huge - a scant 60" all round, but that's big enough to cuddle under (and I had no more fabric!)

Mixture of fabrics (bet you can spot some of them) including Carolyn Friedland's Doe, Kaffe Fassett and Grunge.  As is my habit I have used a wool batting and it is quilted with a Sulky 12 blendable thread in a mixture of blue, green and yellow. 

The binding is a Kaffe Fassett stripe.

I know lots of people are away/on a blogging break over the summer but we're running AHIQ anyway - hopefully someone else is still out there!

Another winner! Love the colors and the quilting. I will be another now-show in the AHIQ linkup, having been busy with other stuff lately. But I'll visit everyone else's posts to see what's been up!

A superb finish Kaja! That wool wadding looks so squidgy and soft. There's such a lovely rhythm to the squares and as ever I love your quilting! I'd love to cuddle up under it! (Sorry, I deleted the first comment because there were so many typos it was illegible!!)

Oh Kaja you have such flair with colour, I love it. You take a seemingly simple design and make it special.

Yummy color scheme. I've never used wool batting or sulky 12. Thanks for the tip. Congrats on the finish.

That binding is perfect! I like the look of the wool batting too, super!

These colors look great together! And 60" is perfect for cuddling! I've added a link but, really, it probably shouldn't be in AHIQ. At least I can say I didn't plan any of the stitching. Luckily there aren't too many of the same fabrics touching each other.

Absolutely smashing quilt and I love the pieced back of this. A happy finish - congrats!

Fantastic : )

Kathy said...

That's a nice size. It looks so soft.

It's really great to see Walls quilted and bound - it looks terrific Kaja!

Julie said...

Gosh, I love this piece! There is so much interest in the piecing, and I appreciate the limited palette. It's going to be perfect in a place you can sit to look at it--not just walk by. It takes several minutes to take it all in, I think. This was an excellent choice to finish! I give it an 'A'.

wow, what a grand job! I'm trying analyze why I like it so much. I think it's the random nature combined with repetition of shape and color. The lines intersect, and continue. It is so interesting to look at, to study. Great job Kaja!

AND the fact that I can't find how you constructed it in straight lines. Every time I think I have found the strips, nope!

I'm here ! Love how this quilt came together and it looks so tactile . Both this and your lighthouse quilt have that particular shade of blue that I love running through them

WOW!!
This is beautiful; there is so much to look at. I find my eyes going backwards and forwards and constantly seeing new details and connections.
