The Shirt Quilt is Finished and Living In Albuquerque

I finished the shirt quilt two days before we set out for New Mexico. It came along with us as a gift for our hosts, J & G.

This is not the sort of quilt I usually make. All that symmetry is a little disturbing! But J loves this kind of thing and was very happy to have it. Her cat liked it too.

Here is the back. Quilting this thing took forever and the process merits its own post. As you can see, I went with a diagonal crosshatch.

    That is so beautiful. Quite possibly one of my all time favorite quilts. I love everything about it. The fabric, the colors, the quilting (which I am sure is epic) and the design. You’re friend is very lucky:)
