…and Happy St. Patricks day!
today at 11:44 ended a long journey for me 🙂
Remember when I started my Baltimore Album Quilt in 2015?
..exactly on the 28.09.2015.
A lot of things have happened since then, a lot of working hours were done.
Time flew like it feels now 🙂 and nothing could stop me from accomplishing my goal!
I´m very proud to say today “ I made it!“ 🙂
I take the „green day“ as we call St. Patricks day too as a good Omen, because green is the color of healing and the heart chakra.
A long journey came to an end…still can´t believe it.
Please be aware!:
it´s my original design – no copying allowed!
it´s all hand appliqued with the Apliquick(c) technik / tools
threads used for hand appliquè are Silk threads from YLI
the batting is 100% wool batting from Hobbs heirloom
Threads for the quilting are from Wonderfil 100wt Invisafil (5000m)
Embroidery motive (Samoyeds) is from embroidery library (find the licens/permit rules on their homepage)
all hand embroidery thread is from DMC
all fabrics are 100% cotton fabric
the material needed for the apliquick(c) technik is from Vlieseline/vilene
All quilting was accomplished on my sit-down Pfaff Powerquilter 16.0
the applique mimics the so called „kurbits“ painting which is typically found in Sweden on furniture, fabric or decoration pieces.
The entire Quilt is made in hand applique and it took me 3 month to quilt it.
Hope I didn´t forget something
Here some pics now: 🙂
The Quilt messures 250x250cm (picture taken in my new „Quilt stuga“ which was build because of this Quilt – to give it a home – another story 😉 )
The name of the Quilt “ My heart is Swedish“
I feel very blessed today !
My big THANK YOU goes to Walter for all his support during the hole time!
Love you honey!
I wish you all a blessed day!
