I like it, I hope you do too!


Finally, this top is now also together, although the blocks and the sashing have been finished and waiting for my attention for a while. I don't know what's wrong with me, but I am not very keen on this particular part of quilt making. Probably because I'm not very good at it and I find it tedious as well as boring to sew those long seams with all the points which have to meet.  I usually break the task up over a few days to make it more bearable (pathetic, I know).  But now it is together and I'm pleased with it. I think I will hand quilt it using some colourful pearl cotton. 

Cheers

Es sind ja absolut nicht meine Farben, aber trotzdem gefällt mir das. Und wenn ich dich richtig verstehe, drückst du dich vor dem Quilten. Die Übersetzung schreibt sowas ähnliches. Aber es wäre schade, wenn das jetzt auf dem UFO Stapel landet.

Tschakka, du schaffst das ;-)

I LOVE it!!! Your quilt top is beautiful! Did you do EPP for those blocks? The colours you've chosen for this quilt are stunning in combination and I love how you fussy cut those fabrics. Hand quilting with those pearl cotton thread will give some lovely handmade look and I can't wait to see it finished! I am so inspired by you, Vreni!

Liebe Vreni,
dieses so wunderschöne Top "verdient" es, mit der Hand gequiltet zu werden.
Hab ein schönes Wochenende und sei ganz lieb gegrüßt

Hallo Vreni,
puhhh, geschafft? Kenn ich. Es gibt immer so Phasen bei einem Quilt, die "Arbeit" bedeuten und nicht wirklich spannend sind und anstrengend und ohne die es doch nicht weitergeht. Aber das Ergebnis entschädigt dann immer, oder? Jedenfalls finde ich diesen bunte Top ganz klasse!
Viel Spaß beim Quilten, wünsch ich und schönes Wochenende :o) Doris

Vreni, it is mouthwateringly delicious and I LOVE your fussy cutting. You have made a fabulous job and I shall have to keep coming back to see it.

It's fantastic! (I love making blocks, but am not fond of putting them together--a necessary part of finishing though!) Your blocks are wonderful!

Janet said...

Your top is looking gorgeous, I just love the colour saturation in this one. I'm with you on the borders, I procastinate terribly over doing them.

Linda said...

It's a fun-looking quilt, Vreni! I like it a lot. Pearl cotton will be the perfect quilted finish for it.

Lynda said...

It is beautiful! I love the idea for the border on the quilt in your last post too. Who cares if it takes 2 years to make a quilt... the process is the fun part. The finished quilt is just a bonus.

Heather said...

I love this one, so cheery and bright. Your fussy cutting just makes this one come alive!

Hello:
Your work is absolutely beautiful. I keep telling my husband I am a collector of fabrics, not a user. LOL Where is this pattern found, or do you create it? What size blocks did you use? I taught my daughters to quilt with paper piecing, they each have their own Grandmothers Floral Garden. And they appreciate anything hand made because they know how long it takes someone.
Hugs,

Wow Vreni, this is a real stunner! Love the fussy cutting & all that hard work making the sashings has really paid off. I still need to put all my blocks together but I think I'll keep the sashings simple (I'm feeling lazy!lol)
