It took me a while but now I finished this quilt called: Passion. I started with the New York Beauty in the middle and my first idea was to make nine of it. But I have to confess, that sewing on paper is not my favorite way to work. Even if I love this pattern I decided to leave it and do something different. So these log cabin like blocks were my next choice. The middle part is symmetric but it needed a bit more I thought. So I decided to make the bottom and top different. Now I´m pretty happy with it.
I made this quilt top during last winter and enjoyed these vivid colors against the grey and darkness
This is truly wonderful, the colors, the design, the combination. Very nice job.
Wonderful job! (And I am with you on not paper piecing!) A beautiful quilt.
Oh how pretty and bright!
I love that you went with your intuition and improvised; you made this a very exciting and beautiful quilt.
Thanks a lot for all your nice comments. I appreciate your support.
Congratulations on a sunny finish. You had fun combining these fabrics in many different ways through the log cabins and then the two borders. Neat!
It is indeed gorgeous. Passion is a perfect name for it. I am not too fond of paper-piecing either but I must for we have to make a New York Beauty quilt for the blog hop in May.
Your quilt is an exciting example of improv design, Doris!
Great finish. And the colors do brighten up a winter day.
A great finish with your beautiful design. I wasn't too happy when I worked with machine paper piecing, hated all that paper removal!
Such a bright, happy looking quilt!
I love your finish: a nice mix of styles that works because of the bright colours. The result is beautifully cheerful! I agree on paper piecing: blunt needle, and paper to pull away at the end, bah!
What a fantastic finish. I love how you went with your instincts and also how you have played with symmetry/asymmetry. It all works together so well!
