    July Jubilee

    This is a Venice Rose from Norah McMeeking's book Bella Bella Quilts. I started it several years ago and kept putting it away for awhile. It is paper piecing and each wedge took me an hour to do with much tacking down, cutting, sewing and back to cutting, tacking, sewing again with each wedge having 18 pieces and there are 40 wedges. It was an up and down process so I did get my exercise. I have named it July Jubilee as I am so happy to have finished the top. The center is Marti Mitchell's Sunburst templates. I have to give my daughter Carrie the credit for the fabrics. She has such an eye for color and I love how it all came together. Now to get the batting, backing all pinned and finish the final process. Thanks for looking. Oh, and our kitty Mota is admiring it in the corner.

    I think Mota is trying not to get dizzy by looking directly at the center. You made such a pretty quilt. It looks like it would have took such a long time. I really like the colors.

    Gorgeous! You must feel so good to have the top finally done! I think your cat is mesmerized by the pattern. It's like looking into a kalideoscope (spelling?).
