Alright, so this is going up a little late, but better late than never right?
“I saw this quilt design by Ellen Stuckey in a Quilter’s World magazine several years ago. I finally found a selection of shot cottons and grunge cottons that I thought would work well together. The piecing is mostly improv, consisting of two panelsthat are offset, resulting in an unusual top/bottom edge. The quilt top is quilted to the batting using straight line designs; echo quilting was used to define the leaves. The quilt was then finished with a full back facing rather than the more common binding technique. To hold the back in place it was strategically “stitched in the ditch” along some of the major pieces. As soon as it was finished I hung it in our front entry – just the right addition to a tall narrow wall!”
What a great quilt Cris!
