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!


  1. Super! Od razu widać, że to jest nie tylko piękny quilt, ale z historią. I dwie osoby go trzymają, więc pewnie jest spory. Tylko fotek jakoś mało:(
    Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku!!!

  2. I just love it! So pretty x

  3. It's a beautiful quilt, I love quilts with all the favourite fabrics in them! All the best to you for the new year!

  4. It's just gorgeous! So much work and beautiful fabrics. A treasure

  5. It is a really beautiful, proper quilt! The texture is lovely. Happy New Year!

  6. I ❤️ This quilt so much. All your special fabrics will be fun to look at as you wrap yourself in this quilt. I really like what you did with the corners and the hand quilting is beautiful
