Here we go. I tried to stay off computer as much as I could and bit by bit I managed to finish it. I try to name quilts by song titles. This one is not finished yet but I picked "Tribute" as I listened to album called Tribute by John Newman while making it. It is also a tribute to quilting community which helped me to get to this point. Thank you!
It’s all for you, it’s all for you
For what you have made me, look how I grew
Here’s my tribute
As usual I love my latest finish the most and I tend to say that it is the best thing I have ever made, lol. It started out as ruler testing on scraps. I was after mini only. The original pattern is by Jaybird quilts called Mini Disco. I used both the mini and the regular Hex N More ruler as well.
It is made out of batiks leftovers and solid charm squares. Don't you like the back as well?
Once I had it all on my design wall I was worried I mess up the layout. I don't have machine in the same room so I took off random pieces keeping them in order.
I pieced them in the exact order as well.
I placed ironing board in front of the design wall and once I pressed the seams I put it back up. I kept the exact order the whole time while working on it.
I don't usually pin but pincushion wrapped around my wrist was a big helper.
The pieced Mini Disco part measures 24 x 39" with added borders enlarged to 58x74" quilt top.
