Although we are already 2 weeks into 2013, here is my final quilt for 2012 — the Batik Pickle Dish. I finishing the binding on New Year’s Eve. This quilt will be shipped off this week for a wedding gift. They are both Notre Dame grads, so to add a personal touch, I have blue and gold (well, closest gold-ish color of Kona Cotton I could match).
The pickle dish is probably the most labor intensive quilt pattern I have attempted. Each curve was paper pieced, trimmed, attached to some curve pieces, and sewn together to make the quilt top. In addition, I tried out some new free motion quilting. Altogether, it was my main project for seven months. With this project completed, I will be kicking off more projects with 6 baby quilts for babies born in the Fall.
Here are my link ups this week:
