Liberty Oakshott Sixteen-patch: finished!
So here it is: I felt I had to get the binding stitched for today after showing you WIP pics on Wednesday, so I spent a couple of hours this morning hand sewing when I should have been doing a whole lot of other things....
Anyway it was such a pleasure putting in every one of those little hand stitches; I was able to really enjoy the texture of the shot cotton binding and the sheen of the patches as I worked. Quite a sensuous quilt for such a simple design, and one I am growing to love more every day it is around.
Anyway I did have one or two moments of hesitation with this quilt, and the blocks lay around for some months, but as it progressed I felt more friendly towards it and now I am absolutely sure. I love how blue it is (my comfort colour) but the hits of purple, pink and green are necessary too. So a happy ending to my week: how about you?
Linking today to Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts: Finish it up Friday. Love the wonky star pincushions.
PS The finished quilt measures 64" x 72". Quilted with a fine grey Aurifil, colour 2620. Other relevant info in previous posts, I think.
