This is Windows, the quilt I made for a recent swap between members of the Australian/NZ Art Quilters online group. This morning I heard from the recipient, Annette, that my quilt had arrived, so now I can show you all.
I hand dyed the fabric earlier this year and then hand stitched it in squarish shapes to give the feel of windows. My stitching is irregular to provide the wonkiness that I love so much. I used the brilliant WonderFil Spagetti and Frutti cotton threads for the stitching.
Here you can see the stitching close up. I love stitches that aren't straight!
