In my second supersized quilt challenge, I remade my Flashdance quilt as a twin sized quilt. Another challenge was getting a shot of this giant (70 x 86) by myself on a bright, windy, cold day. Here's what I could get.
You can see I kept the piecing as similar to the original as possible, while still creating the blocks improvisationally.
I echoed the slightly wonky shapes in the piecing with organic, vertical quilting. It is no easy task to quilt down the entire length of a piece this size, on a home machine, so organic lines are a nice, forgiving option. Still, it takes concentration to keep things evenly uneven, just as with the crosshatch I did on the baby version.
My favorite unique touches to this version of the quilt are the pieced back and the touch of aqua in the binding.
I'm happy to say these two are headed to their new home this week. I hope they will get lots of use, and that a certain two little girls really like them!
