Back in September, right after I started blogging about my quilting, and more importantly following other bloggers, I ended Diary of a Quilter's give away. It was only the third giveaway I'd entered, and I won a fat quarter bundle of Madrona Road.
I'd been eyeing the New Wave pattern every since I saw it, but didn't feel like I had the right fabric for it. Then boom, it calls for 12 fat quarters, and I won 12 fat quarters. It's a pattern that allows for large prints to be showcased and the fabrics that I won are large prints. It all fell into place. So now I have completed top. I think for the actual quilting, I will pebble in the white space - that'll be a good number of bobbins, but it's a pattern I want to try, and this will keep it contained.
I cut the tumblers and white strips back in November, but they'd just been sitting in a stack, so between last night when I called it quits to studying, and this morning, all the pieces came together. Apologies for the poor lighting, it's cloudy, and I don't feel like putting shoes on to go outside to take pictures. Over the next week, I'll iron it and probably sandwich, we'll see when the quilting actually happens.
