before the year is over

There is still a few hours of 2015 left (well, about 15, if you live in my time zone), so I'd better show you my last quilt of this year.
I'm hoping to write a bit more about the process, as again I started with a very different idea for this quilt, but lets leave it for another time. For now, let me present... orange pickle:

pieced with my most treasured fabrics,

backed with my favourite Ikea print and with the obligatory pieced strip ;)

and if you look very, very closely you can even see that it's hand quilted.

So, hopefully, see you here some time next year for all the fun facts about the quilt (e.g. the top is pieced with 432 petal shapes and 864 "half-frame" shapes ;)) and in the meantime:

Happy New Year!
