40.5" x 51"
I am excessively pleased with this little quilt. I loved it from the start, but it sure seemed to take a long time before it's turn to be completed. And, I am still not sure if I am finished or not. I think some of the people need to be hanging out in the park, picnics, exploring the gardens, etc. And, I think I would like to add flowers to the gardens. What do you think? Meanwhile, if I do move some of the people around, I will let you know and post an update!
Did you notice that it looks slightly larger at the top? This is not your imagination. I made it slightly larger to add to the sense of perspective pulling your eye in. This quilt started with the stack of blocks. And then I added this piece of shibori to create the lawn. It was perfect!
of the fabrics in place, I knew I wanted more in the foreground, so I added a piece of tracing paper. The idea in my head was now starting to take shape. I sketched the general idea, and started thinking about fabrics and colors for the next section.
Next came the quilting of buildings, the cut work and hand work on the windows.
Here is the movie. It is unlisted, so you can't search for it on YouTube. Enjoy!!
