Project 48 Quilt Finish

We've had so much rain and wind it has been a challenge to find a good time for photos.  This is the finish of my 2016 Project 48 Quilt.  More details here.

The project was begun Jan 23, 2016, the last block finished Feb 12, 2017. Blocks are 9" finished. There are 974 pieces in the quilt!  Quilting was finished and one side of the binding attached for the London Modern Quilt Guild show & share at our June guild meeting.

This was a quilt-along project organized by Linden Vine of Vine Line Quilting, and Crystal McGann of Raspberry Spool.  Their website for this QAL ... Project48Quilt.com

I did add some solid blocks of my favourite fabrics, to upsize the quilt.

A fun journey through improv piecing, English Paper Piecing, curves, triangles, dresden plates, flying geese and applique, in a very modern style.
