Two years (or possibly more) in the making and ‘Anything Goes’ is finally done.
I’m pretty pleased. I played with this design originally for the book’s log cabin chapter, but it also could have been included in the strip piecing chapter.
Its final construction is pieced together utilizing what we refer to as ‘paneling’ in the book.
I think going with the stick straight lines worked.
The simple quilting allowed the design to shine.
The binding is a perfect finishing touch. It needed the bold frame of the purple, but I wanted to finish the squares that floated off the edge of the quilt with some pieced binding.
For the back?
Leftovers and flannel…
I think I might like the back better than the front.
Just need to finish up Psychedelic Baby and I’m ready for my exhibit next month.
Speaking of which….my quilts (book and beyond) will be on display at Island Quilter on Vashon Island the month of May. The reception and book signing is on the first Friday Art Walk, May 4th from 6-9pm. I would love it if you would attend!
Great opportunity to drop some dime at an incredible fabric store too.
Hope to see you there.
