The Final 2012 Quilt – Pickle Dish

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:
