This quilt has been a work in progress for 4(?) years now. I started it at a workshop taught by a lovely teacher, Gyleen Fitzgerald. My quilting friends Brenda, Candy, and Jill were also along for the fun and as NICU employees we couldn’t help but call these our “biohazard” quilts.
The hold up here is that I am HAND quilting the border and inside each hexagon. Why? Simply because I don’t know how else to obtain smooth curves and nicely rounded feathers. My free motion quilting is not even close to good enough for the (sometimes) perfectionist in me.
(By the way, Kristen is under the delusion that she might still receive this quilt for Christmas!)
And finally, here she is…my oldest unfinished project. This is a watercolor painting I started several years ago, just before getting the quilting bug. I KNOW she is meant to be an art quilt! I’m eyeing the stash now and picking fabrics to bring her to life. I think it’s her time.
