    Great quilt! I've done borders like this but never a whole quilt. Love the colors. Thanks for sharing.

    That is one gorgeous piece of work !! How in the world did you get such nice seams? -- no stretchy-stretchy. [It reminds me of spiralling. Have you ever done that? It's done with pieces cut on the straight or crossgrain then stitched in such a way that the piece ends up on the bias.]
    I love your choice of colors. Black, white, and red is a timeless combination.lol

    Steph-that is a gorgeous quilt--it has such great movement to it. And I bow to your "bias talent".

    It stretched and I just steamed the crap out of it to get it back! This was done with straight grain cutting, then all the pieces were sewn together over hanging by about 2 inches, and then those edges were cut off at the 45 degree angle. Then the edges were sewn together into a "tube" and the final strips cut from that, then re-sewn back together again, I had to stick a pin trough each seam to match them up! It was a bear but fun!

    LOL - the first time I"ve worked with anything cut on the bias, and I think it will be a while before I do it again!

    Well, Mama, I think that sounds like spiralling. I just love to do that. I made the cutest Christmas stockings with that technique a few years ago. Used bright Christmas colors, etc. Wish I could send pics.
