Hi everyone! My favourite song ‘Summer Wine’ … quilted and finished!
This small quilt started as a summer project. I was thinking to have it with me and stitch now and then when having free moments. But what happened … I got so hooked that it became almost the main project and I finished the top much quicker than I expected. Few posts about the process are HERE and HERE.
Octagons are paper pieced and little squares I have sewn without paper. I just folded the edges. Look THIS POST to see how I made them. Quilting was a big question and finally I made circles.
Quilting is made with natural white cotton. It doesn’t show very much but this time I didn’t like to add more colours with quilting but to leave the octagons in a main role.
Binding took long time … first I couldn’t decide what fabric to use and then my sewing table was all the time filled with foundation pieced animals.
Name: ‘Summer Wine’
Size: 24″ x 24″
Technique: paper pieced octagons and squares, pieced and quilted by hand
Paper piecing info and lots of links on my page ‘Paper Piecing’.
I had imagined to present this quilt with lovely, cool glass of white wine … but as it took so much time to finish … I have drink the wine. Luckily found some grapes from the garden and vine leaves which would be delicious stuffed with hearbs and rice.
This little quilt is going to gladden me on my garden table … stitching with a glass of wine … what else a quilter can wish!
