The opera quilt is finished and was delivered to the opera fundraiser about an hour ago. It looks good from a distance. Here it is, modeled by Gwensdad.
This is the largest thing I have ever quilted. If I ever say I want to do it again please shoot me. Wrestling all that fabric in and out of the sewing machine was really not fun. But I loved working with all those great black and white prints. And there are plenty of scraps left over so I can make something for Gwen.
Here’s a closer look. When the top was finished it looked like there was too much white. So I quilted the white strips to give them some texture and left the black prints alone. The quilting job is really amateur. But it’s a crib quilt and the baby won’t care. Hopefully the potential bidders will have a few drinks in them and won’t care either!
