A long term project

This is about a quilt top I finished yesterday evening. For me it is a long term project. Allthough... sometimes I read about quilts that have been lying around for many years. That didn´t happen to me yet... But there are some bits and pieces in the depth of my drawer...:-)
But back to this quilt top.
I really love it.

A few months ago I bought "Material Obsession" by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. This quilt pattern is not one of the books but I was very inspired by the way they put fabric and pattern together. So lets say I was hardly inspired!

So the first thing I had to do this morning, as soon as the light was right ( the sun just had climbed over Berlins city roofs) I went into my backyard and took some pictures.

Quilting it might take some more time, as I am really busy with work until christmas...and there are two other tops waiting.
But this op waited so long to be finsihed, it can wait a little longer to become a proper quilt.
Take Care and have a sunny day!

  1. That is truly beautiful! I love the design and the dresdens and fans! great job!

  2. I love this quilt top, the pattern is beautiful and you picked some really nice fabrics that go wonderfully well together.
    What I like best is how the 'middle' part of the quarter motifs go into the brown frame. That gives it a look that's a bit less regimented (for wont of a better word). The flying geese rows are just right in rounding it all off. I really like it!

  3. I love what you have come up with. The flying geese and combination of plates and fans, wonderful!
