The Wayward Transparency QAL started way back in August 2017., I was tempted, and fell in head first. Knowing Yvonne’s super quilting designs, I knew this would be another stunner. Here is the first post that gave us all enthusiasm beyond boundaries to join in.
We chose fabrics, according to the light, medium and dark tones suggested, some of us were savvy enough to take a photo in the fabric shop, and change it to Black and White, this gives a wonderful idea of how good the contrast would be. YES, I chose 2 different shades, green and mauve/purple. The PURPLES won the first vote. Greens are waiting .
Gradually we all made choices, the Facebook group was a huge success, and we all “Oohed and Ahhed” over the fabrics shown. The first cutting instructions were given, and in October and November piecing directions made this go together so easily, yes even for me it went without a hitch. Finishing post went up in December, and the final link up is this week. Thanks so much Yvonne, for a totally fantastic QAL.There are finished quilts, flimsies, other layouts, and every one is a beauty.
I am so proud of those joins, seams all lined up as they should.
I have added a pale border, and the binding will be probably pale with the dark fabric as a wider flange. This has to wait until we come back from the South Island festivities.
Here it is pinned up, balancing carefully on 2 chairs!!! after some heavy rain overnight.
This is my favourite!!! Stretched out, under Hugh’s Dad’s Weeping Silver Pear Tree, my “ Go To “ Place for quilt pics. A bit of a breeze, and dappled sunlight shining on the lawn.
Late afternoon sun gave that stained glass look, hung between the framework for the Honeysuckle.
Here it is between the little gusts of wind.I have to be patient and wait for the short/medium arm Gammill machine to be re-wired, and have some serious practice first, then this might be top o’ the list!!
Thanks again Yvonne, for this adventure, with a lot of fun and happiness galore all the way along.
