Passacaglia !


Top is finished !!!
Yes indeedie :-)
Picture more-or-less speaks for itself, won't you say ?
Well, it's taken 2 and a half years to get it this far. Granted about a year of that was spent doing ne'er a stitch on anything at all. Not Passacaglia, not any other project. Another 3 months (or maybe 6) were spent in (mild) denial about the blocks that simply didn't work with the majority.
But now it's finished, and even if I say so myself, it's looking good :-)
Finished size : 72 x 96"
Yes. It turned out a big quilt

As we were taking pictures this morning, a neighbour saw us at it (he knows the deal when I stand in the middle of the road with a camera), and came out to see. Much praise was given, and it felt good. What felt particularly good was, that he rushed of his house, barefoot, just 'to see what you've done now'. Really a nice man, wouldn't you say :-)

Wonderful Tilde - congratulations on the finish. I recognize all of those blocks from your individual postings. Together they certainly don't look like a "pink" quilt!

Tilde,

Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous!!! You show us all how interesting we can make a one block quilt with the fabric choices and positioning in the block.
