The Quick Brown Fox

It's all done. I think it's much prettier in real life. The colors are rich, the dark blue is VERY dark, and the orange-y binding just glows. It looks rather pitiful in this photo, taken inside with a flash in bad light. I'll try to take some pictures outside in the next few days, so keep checking back.I started this quilt on January 2, 2010; worked fairly constantly on it until I took a three week break in February (to finish Devon's quilt). After that I worked for another month until I took 2 weeks off to visit family in Maryland. When I got back, I worked on Helen's Rules quilt, made a version of the Rules for Tonya, and finished the top in early May of this year.

It hung on my wall all summer while I made No Rules for Julie, and then the Fox and No Rules traveled to Tennessee to be quilted by Chris.

It came back from Chris a month ago, and waited patiently while I worked on Nine x Nine (my color words flimsy.)

Now it's all done, all signed, and it's Mine! I'm keeping this beauty!


details: 57" tall x 48.5" wide (145 x 123 cm). Completely original, designed by me, no patterns, (no, there will -never- be a pattern), no templates, no paper piecing. Free pieced letters inspired by Tonya.
