It's friday and time to share my first quilt finish of 2013. My fractured field study no.2 is 48" by 60" and hand quilted on wool batting and a voile backing. I showed a picture in an earlier post, telling the story of how one quilt top ended up as two. (Not the first time that have happened to me ; ) )
The pattern is my simplification of Kathy Doughty's lovely pattern. I used 2.5" strips WOF for the stepped blocks and added 4.5" squares for the center ones. The start of this palette came from some of Anna Maria Horners line Field Study. I had a lot of fun combining the colors, adding many favorite designers to the mix...
The AMH voile has a width of 54", making it a great backing for this smallish size lap quilt. I have used this fabric as a backing before, in yellow and fuchsia. This is the first time I combine it with wool. The result is so soft - wish you all could touch it. Hand-quilting this combination was a joy too!
And quite a few? more pictures...
Wish you all a happy international woman's day!
