Finally another finished quilt

Careful! This is a picture heavy Blogpost!!!
I have the feeling that I didn´t finish a quilt in ages. But two days ago i did. It is the Gees Bend inspired one which I worked on in Spain also. I told you about it here.

This one is really special, because I tried a lot of new things. First I cut and sewed totally freehanded. I didn´t bring the rotary cutter to spain and cut very old school with scissors, without measuring anything. I really wanted to have some wonky seems, which unfortunately didn´t work out so good. But I can oversee this, becuase the overall patchwork I really like.

As I already wrote and what I was itching to do back from Spain, was to use a lot of patterns from the Book "Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters". So I did recently  and I used a lot of the patterns, not all but nearly...

 I am so grateful for this book. As I had somehow lost my interest in the quilting process  over  the last few months, the book came at the right time. After trying so many new patterns I am itching to quilt the pending quilttops which want to bee finished soon. I totally can recommend this book, as I definetely took my fear away from trying new things. I cant´wait to quilt this chevronish quilt  with the allover pattern called paisley. I loved this pattern (and some others)the most.
 So here are some photos where you can see my attempts, maybe not perfect (yet ;-)) but I am quite proud. The allover look of the quilt may be a little bit uncalm, but it was more of a practicing piece. I like it, just because over all it was such  fun to make.

 I think I have to hop over to Angelas site to tell here how happy I am about her book.
