I finished this quilt a few weekends ago. It sitting waiting for a sleeve as I will pop it into our guild show next month. This is a fabulous design from Nydia Kehnle, called Dimension. It is paper pieced and I biggie sized it with extra blocks to make it much larger. The 3 D effect is quite the thing. It is made entirely from Kona solids for the front and binding. And I bought them all at Sew Sisters. If you read this quick and pop over there, they may still have their Konas on sale for the weekend. Quick!
It was a breezy day when I took these pictures. The grass was so green even though it was mid winter. It was just a tease though as we were hit with snowfall and cold this week and we look like we live in a winter wonderland today.
I backed the quilt with a wonderful Denyse Schmidt print. Mostly grey with a bit of a sheen and a small print. Almost a bit masculine. It was a perfect fit. Quilted with a bright turquoise Aurifil, in an irregular grid. Lots of clothespins for this one!
