1. But it turned out great in the end! And I think you get to feel very creative for having solved all those quirky problems. Love the quilt!

  2. Sometimes when you lose patience with a project everything starts to go wrong but this came out lovely in the end! It reminds me of the seashore with gulls flying overhead and has a very calming vibe now. Hope you enjoy it now it’s finished!

  3. It may have been a flocker to make but I think it’s turned out beautiful.. and I love blue and green together! Have a wonderful weekend too, btw what tattoo did you get? πŸ˜‰

  4. Your quilt is beautiful! I loved reading about it’s construction and how you “made it work”. I visit your blog daily in hopes of finding more of your wonderful pictures and stories. Thank you!

  5. Well I’m worn out from reading of the trials of flocking. I do love the color palette -very oceanie and soothing. The back turned out as nice as the front. I think you surely built character on this one:)

  6. I am all frazzled by just reading this post! Lots of do and undo and redo, but thank Goodness the result is so pretty. Hope you can spend many hours relaxing under this charming quilt.

  7. Great quilt Kirsty! I especially love what you did with the binding, it could be a bit tedious to put together but the effect is worth it I think. Thanks for sharing your process, the good, the bad and the pretty!

  8. This is gorgeous! I cannot imagine having to baste, unbaste and rebaste–basting is my least favorite part of the process! But I’m glad it was sorted in the end–I don’t believe that bit about blue and green in the slightest, anyway. πŸ™‚

  9. Oh my gosh – unbasting!!!!! You are a saint, despite the newly won tattoos. I think it came out beautifully and I love those colors together. The gradation you chose actually looks a little like a half a trip around the world, but coming down instead of from the side and with mixed fabrics. Very nicely done!

  10. This is so gorgeous! Sounds like you went through hell and back to get it, but IMHO it was worth it! I am totally saving this one for inspiration.

  11. I think this quilt might be my favourite of all the projects you’ve shown us. LOVE it!! Seems like its creation was a bit like giving birth: hard work but definitely worth it in the end.

  12. I flocking like it! πŸ™‚ It really is beautiful! The back is brilliant as well! Thank goodness for alcohol and buttock tattoos!

  13. Kirsty, it came out flocking beautiful! You are so talented… not only can you turn a wine bottle into an explosive device (I didn’t want to use the ‘b’ word on your blog) but you can quilt like a motherflocker.
    And this right here is why we’re friends: “There was nothing for it but to get drunk, trash some cars and invest in some quality buttock tattoos.”
    So let’s start planning that LPV visit shall we? You + The Larsons in a gite for a weekend sounds like a flocking good time to me πŸ™‚ x

  14. Wonderful quilt and delightful post that I absolutely relate to. I’m an expereinced un-picker, but you beat me by miles on this one (mostly because I don’t do the quilting myself!) You’ve got the patience of a flocking saint πŸ˜‰

  15. Uuuhm… how did I miss this beauty?! It’s gorgeous Kirsty! I love it, the colors are my favorite and the lay out is really original I think.


  16. I love your quilt and am planning to make one this weekend.
    FYI, if your bobbin case has the little sticking out finger with a tiny hole in the end of it, you thread the bobbin thread through it after putting the bobbin into the case, then pop the case back into the machine. Now, when you quilt, the bobbin thread stays on the bottom, top thread on the top and no pokies. The planets all align and your quilting is lovely. I saw this on a recent episode of Quilting Arts,and tried it with my Pfaff with great results. The other plus is you don’t have to make any top tension adjustments!
    I quilt professionally on a longarm machine, but enjoy doing smaller projects on my domestic machines, as well. Your quilts and our text are both delightful! Thank you!
