Here is Mary's quilt, she is calling it Death by Half Square. I love that name, when you see how many little pieces are in this quilt you'll understand a little better. Also, I know what happened the day Mary was rushing to finish this quilt to bring to me. She almost sliced off her finger. Almost... whew!
the Quilt Show, called Stars for a New Day, designed by Sue Garman. I did not know this, a wonderful facebook friend let me know all the details, including the fact that the pattern is available at Quakertown Quilts.
So... that's a lot of pieces right? And in all that piecing one of the borders had a tiny little booboo. No worries, after a couple of quick emails with Mary I fixed it. I couldn't possibly leave a little mistake, especially since it only took less than a hour to fix.
Then came the ditch work... ehhh... not my favorite thing, but totally necessary on this quilt.
Two days later ditch work was done and I was ready to quilt! Not sure if it was two full days, or two ADD days, but it was two calendar days, that's for sure!
And about a week later it was finally finished! What a beautiful quilt. Thank you Mary for allowing me to stitch on this beauty! Here's the full view, some details (look at that fabulous Glide thread), and of course, a peek at the back!
See... I told you a whole lot of stitching was going on last week!
