If you are one of my long-time readers my recall my posts from 2011 about the quilt blocks I and my stitching friends were working on. Follow this link and it'll take you to my posts about the quilt blocks as they were being stitched.
All of the completed stitched quilt blocks
the last blocks were done in November of 2011
On my bed (Queen size)... and its going to be used!
Marie Paule lent me the quilt pattern and the colour conversions to match the fabric colours. In January of 2011 I actually started the stitching portion of this project. I stitched 13 of the quilt blocks, however there there over 49 blocks that make up the quilt block centers. I asked my very special stitching friends to help me out. Each person stitched anywhere from 1-4 blocks for me!
It didn't take long for Zeus to show up to help model my new quilt!
I am ready for my closeup...
Friends who helped me out with the stitching were: Adriana (my favourite 96 year-old stitcher!), Angie, Ann (owner of Knowledge and Needles), Anne & Naan (mother and daughter), Beatrice (Adriana's daughter), Bonnie, Christin, Clare, Dee, Judie, Kathy, Rebbecca, and Sheila. With the help of these people, this ordinary project became extraordinary and very special.
The quilt needed one more block so I did an initial block, its the center of the quilt!
Finally, a couple of years later its finally on my bed and its fantastic!!! (of course Zeus had to help with the modelling)
