A Break in the Clouds

There was a nanosecond break in the clouds yesterday and I was able to get a few pictures of my latest quilt finish. (Ignore that bit of the Halloween quilt peeking out on the right.)


This is my Soho Ziggurat quilt - the fabric is the Soho Chic line from Sandy Gervais which you can see here, and the pattern I used is Windspinner, which you can see here. I love this combination of fabric collection and pattern but what really makes this quilt is the quilting -- swoon!!!


Big Dude checked it out, up close and personal and gave the quilt a big thumbs up - ok if he had opposable thumbs he would definitely have done it!


The quilting was done by Terry Finnerty of The Walking Needle - here is a link to her Facebook page.


She covered every square inch of this quilt with gorgeous designs.


The quilting is so dense and varied that the quilt already has a lovely crinkly texture and I haven't washed it yet. She changed designs in each "step" of the ziggurat shape and that ferny vine in the pea green space is wonderful!


When I put my Halloween decorations away at the end of the month this quilt will be taking up residence on the back of my couch/quilt stand. What a striking display that will be!

happy stitching-
