Stargate quilt

Sorry about the bad quality of the photos but at least the colours are totally true.
This is one bright quilt.
This quilt was pieced and appliqued about 4 years ago but never reached completion due to lots of reasons. Finally, I have found the impetus (I need more room in my house!) and a new person to give it too.
Quilting of any sort has always scared me but following on from a blog post I read last week or the one before (sorry! my forgettory is working overtime) I was inspired to just have a go.
It's random, not perfect by any means and the backing still has to go on but at least that part is finished. Now I just have to piece the backing and hand it over to it's new owner.
And if you're wondering why I called it the stargate quilt, it was inspired by the series but in a totally anti stargate way. The centre panel is a gate surrounded by a pieced star. ;)

  1. It's amazing - thank goodness it's found itself out of the cupboard and onto the finishing pile! x
