I've been thinking about this quilt I made for the fair, just before Andy was born. I had always considered it "the hardest quilt I ever made", but now I'm not so sure that's correct. It was definately the most time-consuming quilt I've ever made, and I think that's a more accurate statement.
I took it outside to get some photos for my blog & etsy site.
Amazing the difference a little sun can make!
I love the brigth blues & yellows together, and the "country" feel this one has.
The prairie points around the edges were also a lot more time-consuming, but it gives it a bit more personality
It was all paper-pieced, using strips of scraps from my stash. When I was working on it, Breanna & Levi kept asking me how many "pizzas" I had finished. Depending how you look at it, you see stars or spiderwebs; it's actually called a spiderweb pattern.
Sewing strips of fabric to paper & then trimming the edges doesn't seem too difficult to me, but tearing off all the paper once the quilt top is complete, is quite time-consuming.
So what about you, do you think different patterns are more difficult, or just more time-consuming?
