THEE Quilt!

Here is the quilt that resulted from the blocks I share in this post. The finished size is about 42" square. There are 36 blocks.
Here's a closeup shot so you can see my swirly quilting. I used a variegated blue thread and was surprised that it showed up so prominently on the quilt. These are the two pieces of hand-dyed fabric that I used to make the quilt. The first one isn't quite as pink and green as the photo suggests, it is more blue and purple. The pictures of the quilt are a better indication of this fabric.
This one was my first attempt at a one yard spiral. It came out ok, but I think it looks better all chopped up!
I forgot to get a photo of the back, but it is pieced remnants of these two fabrics plus a third hand-dye because I didn't have quite enough. I really like this pattern and will probably use it again.

Nice Michelle it looks good. I think I do like the fabrics chopped up better, it gives the quilt more of a random look.

I love the colors in this quilt. It's amazing how different the fabric looks chopped up.


The quilt is awesome! I especially like the black border to finish it off. You did a great job!
