My first art quilt finally finished..


Here is my first quilt finally finished. I am quite pleased with the end result after cutting some of it up that I wasnt happy with!! The centre is made of 9 small art quilts and I have had a go with a basic log quilt style then added some curved vintage lace to break up the lines. A lot of this material was given to me by my friend Liz who has made a lot of perfect quilts in her lifetime. I think I am going to make smaller pieces next time as to be honest I got bored doing this..so next time I am going to do cushions, bags, coasters and small wall hangings.

I understand why you get bored. I love quilts but making so many blocks gets tedious after a while. I wish you would take some close up shots of your center blocks because they look interesting and I can't see them very well. I bet they are really pretty like the whole thing is.
