It might have taken much more time than planned but the wonky kites quilt is finally finished (weeeell, apart from a few threads that need hiding), and I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

The clothes line I'm stealing borrowing from my neighbours seems to have sagged a bit, so the top of the quilt is actually on the other side:

It might be a bit difficult to guess the size from the photos, but it's 202x220cm (slightly bigger than 79"x86").
I hope the intended recipient likes the quilt and will take it home next weekend.

Oh, and yay, it's actually the biggest finish from my Q2 2013 FAL list.

Note: I started the quilt in 2011, so its beginnings are quite blurry to me now, but as far as I remember I was searching for a design that would allow me to make a bed sized quilt and showcase the little bundle of lovely fabric I got from my cousin. And I came across this quilt by Alex at Teaginny and this one by Ashley at Film in the Fridge.


  1. Love your quilting on this - and I really like the oranges and purples against the grey!

  2. It is beautiful. I love the colours. They stand out so beautifully.

  3. This is a really striking quilt. Love it!

  4. Wow! Imponujący rozmiar. I ciekawy dobór kolorów - uwielbiam szarości!! Bardzo mi się podoba.
    Jestem tu po raz pierwszy, troszkę się poszarogęszę tzn. porozglądam :)))

  5. I really like the kites in your quilt, it makes for a nice design. I am sure that the recipient will enjoy that quilt as it is so large, and I am sure, comfortable. Thank you for the links to the quilt designs. I can draw a parallel between both of the kite designs.
