Dark Majesty Flimsy is Complete!


I woke up early yesterday and couldn't fall back to sleep so I got up and went into the sewing studio to sew the rows of the Dark Majesty quilt together. Here I've got it in three big sections and I'm checking to make sure I like the way the pieces are arranged.



Because these blocks have at least two edges on the bias, the rows are on a diagonal. I try to keep the bigger chunks as small as I can until I sew the great big ones together. Here I am lining them up to get ready to sew them together.


Here is the finished flimsy. It will work out to be about 76 x 80 inches. (193 x 203 cm). I'm happy with the way it came out. It's dark, but not too dark or depressing. It's got more color than I originally thought it would. I'm glad I stuck with it.

It is a stunner!!!!!( lost for words, a bit unusual for me, the family would say, but true) I just cannot find words enough to give this a fair tribute.

Okay, now instead of a Lite Bright, it's like looking into a sunlight dappled forest with spring flowers popping bursts of color all around...the lighting in this photo really shows the aliveness of this dazzling creation.....spectacular :)
