A Good Start


Dahlia Quilt
30" x 33"

How's this for starting off the year, finishing a quilt. I'm not a big one for resolutions but I do want to put a dent in the pile of all those partially done projects.

This quilt was started in July at the Sisters Quilt Show, when I took a class from Melinda Bula. We worked from a pattern and spent most of the 2 days just cutting all the pieces, it is all fused on.

I did a good portion of the machine quilting on my guild retreat in October, and finally did the last of it. I debated different bindings, I was really planning on using orange piping to bring the center color out to the edges, but then decided that wasn't what it needed. I used Melody Johnson's Escape Hatch Finish
