This is a half square triangle quilt I am making for my daughter Miranda to take to college. It is 68 in by 90 in. I feel like I have been quilting it for ever. The above is a picture of the pinning process on my front hall floor.
I used mostly modern fabrics with images that are significant to Miranda. Math, Nutcrackers, pandas, science, Halloween costumes, foxes,etc. It is heavy – that was her one request. It was a bit of a copy from a quilt I made a few years ago . Miranda’s does not have as much contrast so the pattern is less defined but I sacrificed the pattern for the images I wanted to include.
Here is the quilt on my machine. I have used almost an entire spool of the Aurefil fine thread. My arms are worn out. Hopefully it will be completed the next time I post!
One last photo. My daughter Charlotte painted this darling tomato. It is only 4in by 4 in. I love it. I asked her to paint a strawberry for me next.
