Raindrops

Background

This was the project from a class Barbara took at The Quilted Garden beginning October 16, 2006. The pattern is by Judy Niemeyer. The materials, except for a fill-in we needed to add, are batiks. (Can you see the fabric we were forced to add?)

It is Barbara's first paper-piecing project. And, her first compass points project.

We collected the quilt from Catherine, after her professional quilting and binding, on July 16th, 2007.

It was designed to be a wall hanging. But, we want to use, and have used, it as a bed quilt.


Rather magnificent, don't you think.

What you see in the picture was completed March 24, 20007. It was going to take some time for the border to be sorted out. The borders were finished on July 12th.

We also have photos of the finished quilt, and a close-up of the border.

Barbara's first paper-pieced quilt, a mariner's compass pattern. This is from the class she took. This is just a photo of the unfinished top.
