A Terrain Finish.

Posted on | February 9, 2016 | 18 Comments

It is a big finish for me. I am not normally a maker of big quilts, but this one had a mind of its own and grew.

It ended up at 80 inches wide and 95 inches long. It sits very nicely on an old fashioned brass double bed.

It has been made using a layer cake of Kate Spain’s fabric, Terrain, then Moda Bella white, and extra Terrain yardage for the border. Not sure what fabric is in the small orange border but it has a linen look to it.

The blocks are made using the disappearing pinwheel tutorial from the MSQC. These are then set en pointe for the layout.

I chose an edge to edge swirly pattern for the quilting. Lovely work by my wonderful LAQ.

I stuck to a simple white on white backing for this quilt.

Good to have another finish. There are a couple of smaller ones still waiting for their turn. It will come.

I do hope your week is going well.

  • Pauline says: A gorgeous finish the fabrics, Jenny has so many great quilting tutorials. A great pattern choice for your Terrain layer cake!! Congratulations on finishing another quilt, job well done my friend!! Happy stitching, pauline
  • Mary says: Oh my! What a stunning quilt. I love the Kate Spain fabric and you've definitely made a smart move in choosing the clean white to show off those pretty colors. I haven't see the disappearing pinwheel in a full quilt but it's interesting. The pattern reminds me of a churn dash. At first I thought it was a variation. Regardless it's pretty and playful and must be splendid on your brass bed: traditional enough to fit in but modern enough to be bright and colorful.
