In my last post, you saw three items that I am working on now. Today, I am writing about Nicki’s Spirit. This queen size quilt is a wedding gift for a niece and it is getting close to being finished. I have been plugging away at it since it was entered into my Guild’s UFO Challenge back in November. It is being hand quilted and has been a long process.
The pattern was designed using EQ5 and is a variation of a Trip Around The World. I do so love TATW and am playing with different ideas.
My niece asked me to use a cotton toile that she had bought and incorporate it into the quilt. It was dark blue print on white background. The fabric just didn’t blend in well with the rest of the colours, so I decided to tea dye it. That did the trick!
It is a wedding gift, but my niece has already seen it, so no surprises will be revealed. She just won’t see the completed quilt until the wedding brunch, and unfortunately, neither will you. But, don’t fret there are other things for you to see until then.
Have a great day!
