I have finished my stint as a 'Stunt Quilter'!
This is how my project arrived!
This is one of many panels being quilted by different people (both in the UK and US), to cover a Yurt, a mongolian tent!
This was my thread choice!
I have only quilted this one panel (30 x 54 inches) which was pieced by Linzi Upton the project owner...Linzi has made and quilted over 50% of the project herself... All the panels are linked by colour and fabric but all of the designs are different....these panels will cover the sides of the yurt with tweed panels to cover the roof!
The Yurt will be on show by Linzi at the Loch Lomond Quilt Show here in Scotland and may also go over to the US!
There were many firsts:-
First gold lame..had to deal with the issues of skipped stitches and broken thread
First use of a (Barbara Chainey) stencil, embellished
First time 'Stunt Quilter'!
The finished project!
'I just love the back of quilts'!
Being spring in the Scottish Borders there are lots of pressures on your time, I needed to get the panel finished to move on to other things, if I'd had more time to spend, I may have done somethings differently....but hey... you take something away from every quilt!
Now that it's finished I find it was an enjoyable experience...lol...!
I haven't posted it back to Linzi yet as she is still living it large in the US after MQX, something about volcanoes, cancelled flights and backlog????
