I got a quilt back from the quilter!!
This quilt's been gone for awhile, but it was worth the wait!!
Welcome Home Faceted Jewels!!!
This pattern is by Glad Creations. I've seen this quilt on several blogs, it must be a popular pattern.
The finished block size for the pattern was 12", but you know me and big blocks, I made mine slightly smaller at 9".
No quilting suggestions were included with the pattern, and I was thinking about an overall design. On my post where I blogged about finishing the top, I ask for quilting suggestions. Several folks thought an overall pattern would do nothing to enhance the circular effect created when the blocks were connected, and they were right!
Dawn, at the Sewing Basket, could not have done a better job of bringing this quilt to life.
Here's a backside view.
The work Dawn did in the border is as amazing as the center of the quilt.
So here it is, home and ready to brighten up the gloomiest days of winter.
This is my lifetime quilt number 56. It finished at 60" x 78", has 2,192 pieces, and is comprised of batiks from my stash.
