Oriental quilt

Thought I'd show you the customer quilt I'm currently working on. It's really a beauty. Oriental fabrics and batiks make up these simple, stunning blocks. I'm happy to report that the quilt has started talking to me and my quilters block is done. I did six blocks quickly this afternoon, and went through four bobbins! I wound 20 - that's not going to be nearly enough. It's a big quilt - 113" x 125". It's going to be fabulous when it is finished.

Gorgeous, Patti! I totally understand the concept of listening for what the quilt is saying--on the few times I have rushed this process, I have been disappointed and ended up picking out the quilting and doing it over. Your quilting on this one is wonderful!

Hi Patti, I'm going to comment here rather than on each older post that I've missed *VBS* Have to say I love what you've done with your lists on the sidebar. If Blogger doesn't like it, tough!
The new "do" is just wonderful...wish I was that brave. Unfortunately with my silvering hair, it's not just straight and fine, it's getting a bit coarse also...not sure what that is about.
Love seeing all the pics of the older UFO's, what fun!
And Joseph? what can I say..he's adorable, and you are ONE LUCKY GRANDMA....*VBS* Big hugs all around, Finn

That is such a pretty quilt. Looks like a Reynola Pakusich inspired quilt! I really would love to make one of those one day - still collecting fabric for it.
