one more 2013 finish

I generally like to finish my do. Good Stitches quilts quickly so that I can get them donated but this was a tough one for me.  I talked a little about my reasons for choosing this block and just thinking about working on this quilt was a little upsetting.

My inspiration was this quilt and I had intended to have my half square triangles on point as well but when I played around with the blocks I really liked this layout.  In the end working on this quilt was therapeutic and I'm glad I pushed through and finished it up.

The quilting is an all-over swirl pattern.  I forgot to get a photo of the back of the quilt but it is a black and white print with an extra block pieced into the backing.

I am really glad that this quilt will be donated and I hope that it helps someone.

  6. I hope that your heart is a bit lighter with this finish. I know that a lot of prayers went into the blocks, for both you and for the young man who inspired this quilt.

  9. A very lovely quilt, Erica. I love your colour choice. The effect of putting them all in one direction is nice and "quiet". What are its dimensions? huisvlijtigLIESje.blogspot.com

  12. It looks great and I'm glad finishing it really helped with the healing. Situations like that can be tough, I've dealt with something similar and I can relate.
