My sister's 3-D Noughts and Crosses is now quilted and off of my quilting machine. I finished it last night late....too late to get a good picture, so I waited for daylight this morning.
This was my first venture into more of a modern style of quilting. It took me forever to do all of the ruler work and circles! FOREVER....however, this quilt deserved every single stitch.
The back looks like a whole cloth quilt. Gail found the large batik backing at Pacific International Quilt Festival last year. It is hard to find a wide batik and it was perfect for her quilt.
This quilt is from Pick Four by Sue Abrey also known affectionately as Quilt Sue. Sue wrote a wonderful book and Gail made this wonderful quilt that was stitched together with great precision and love. We had the pleasure, and honor of spending twelve days with Sue last fall. What a fabulous twelve days we had, and this quilt will always be a fond reminder of our time together.
Gail and I will be teaching this class on Saturday, March 1st at In Between Stitches. This quilt is easy to make, and goes together quickly. The complexity of the design is in the selection of the four fabrics.....just Pick Four!
