La Passacaglia is finished!!!

Here she is, in all her wonderful glory. Needless to say, I am over the moon happy with this finish! The first picture here is taken outside. It shows the full quilt and is perfectly true to colour. It didn’t show the quilting very well, though, so I took her inside to a more indirect light. I did concentric circles in all the rosettes. I love how they overlap and circle over top of each other. This has been a long journey. I started this quilt back in December of 2014. When I initially got the book and then the papers in the mail, I looked at the size of the triangles for the star points, and almost didn’t start, they were so small, and so intimidating. But with much encouragement from many friends, I kept at it and got it done. I was intending to post this on Sunday for Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching, but life got in the way, so it’s being posted Monday instead. Here’s a close up of the border fabric and the binding fabric which, continuing with the hand stitching theme, was stitched to the back by hand. I usually do my bindings by machine. The backing fabric is a perfect fit to the multicoloured rosette shapes on the front. 
So, I’ll post this a day late to Kathy’s links party. Hmmmm..... maybe I won’t. the link up is closed. Oh well, I guess then that  it’s time to trim another quilt and get its binding made and applied.
Edit.... I linked up to the next week’s party instead.... Slow Sunday Stitching

  9. Absolutely stunning! I have enjoyed watching your quilt grow. Thanks for sharing the finale. I was wondering how you were going to quilt it so thanks for the closeups. This is truly an "heirloom" quilt.
