In Full Bloom :: A Finish {Photo Heavy}

This is a such a big finish for me. The quilt itself is not big, it's about 36" by 44", but it took me many hours to complete.


The background was pieced by machine. Everything else was done by hand. I did a seed stitch for the quilting which you can see better in each of the following close-ups.






The pattern is called "In Full Bloom" by Sue Spargo. It was her 2014 block of the month. Thus, I began this project in January 2014 and finished it yesterday. This quilt is mostly wool, but also contains some silk, linen, cotton and velvet as well as ribbon, beads and lots of different kinds of embroidery threads.

Here it is one last time.

Right in my wheel house! Love this. I still haven't finished my butterflies and that's so small compared to this! I love yours--beautiful.
