Looks good against the purple wall, doesn't it?
This one was a long time in coming. P of The Way I Sew It sent the center Dresden to me in early 2010. I'd finished the piecing before moving from Nevada in November of 2010. I got it sandwiched in 2012. And FINALLY finished quilting it a couple of weeks ago. It measures 23" X 23". Only 4 years.
My intention was to bind it in black. But being determined to utilize something from the stash I've been dragging around from place to place - and adding to along the way - black was not an option. Hence the zebra stripe. I'm quite pleased with the effect.
The Dresden itself is quilted with stitch in the ditch to make it pop. The center has an organic spiral (read as imperfect). The black background is stippled.
I've discovered I really do not like stippling. My brain does not do random. I have to make myself be random. And if I'm concentrating on making no pattern is that really random? (There's your philosophical question for the day.)
The wall hanging resides above my computer - the one I use for blogging and gaming. :)
So for the first time in years....,
I'm linking up on Sarah's blog, Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
