Lovely Year of Finishes: March is done!

As I stated in my previous Lovely Year of Finishes post, this top was pieced in 2008.  And now, I can finally exclaim that it is FINISHED!  woo hoo!!




Web page created!  

done, done, done, done!  :-)

I used a new-to-me thread, "Premium Select" by NanoFiber and is their Soft Antique line. It's a 40wt polyester but is finished to have a matte cotton look. So far, it's working nicely with my Lizzie, not only on this quilt but on subsequent quilts as well.

According to the time that I have to keep track of time, it took me about 9 hours spread over 3-1/2 days to do the quilting. 

Most of that time was doing all the stand along motifs in the scrappy triangles.  Each one of them required its own start and stop because I was using a thread that would have shown on the black if I had tried to sneak through.  Ugh.

I urge you to wander on over the the webpage created for this quilt.  Honest to goodness, there is more verbage and LOTS more pictures for you to look at.  :-)

Those pictures are just teasers! For all the gory details, links and more pictures, please visit my web page for the God's Eye quilt.


  1. I really love how the black fabric frames the strings. Nice Quilting!

  2. Love this quilt and love the quilting. I'm so impressed that you did all of those stops and starts. Very time consuming.

  3. Angie & Linda .. thank you both for your kind comments!

    Mr. Pirate opined that the smaller black sashings made it look like stained glass. I have to agree. :-)

    Regarding those starts and stops. Oh my goodness. I don't know whether to be impressed with myself as well or chagrined that I didn't change the quilting thread to black! :-)
