Warning! A heavy duty picture post follows as well as a small tribute to Robert Kaufman Kona Cottons:
Not everything is always smooth sailing, however this quilt simply unfolded and came together like it was always meant to be. The actual rotary cutting and piecing didn't take all that long, although the same cannot be said for the quilting.
I love the quilting! It has added so much character and texture to the finished quilt. Without it this quilt, although otherwise graphically striking, has no soul, no personality, no zing factor.
And the back: ~ No tucks, no puckering; it's all in the basting. I am still a pin baster, taping the layers to the floor and crawling around on hands and knees to pin, pin, pin. There isn't a whole lot of fun in the process but it consistently produces the best results for me. And so, it will continue.
I really wanted to bind this quilt with a printed fabric, however I quickly came to the conclusion that a black solid fabric was warranted and the only suitable option to frame this quilt.
I have listed this quilt in my Etsy Store: Red Pepper Quilts @ Etsy - SOLD
