78 x 90
This was my longest longarm UFO quilt. It's been ready to be quilted since August 2009.
It was time.
The quilt is made from some sets of sun printed fabric that I bought in Houston one year. I bet I've had them since about 2002. I know it was long before I learned how to sunprint myself.
The fabrics were 10" square. I had one pack of leaf prints and two packs of sun printed textures. I organized them into sets of 3 and made these very simple blocks.
Some of the prints were better than others but they all look great here as a group.
The quilting is an all-over leaf meander using Superior Rainbows in the needle and Bottom Line in the bobbin.
This is my favorite block and the quilting shows up best against the black and gold fabrics.
But the highlight of the quilt, for me, is the back. I dyed this in 2009 specifically to use on this quilt.
The quilting texture shows up nice on the back too.
I could have come up with a more clever name but this quilt is going to an outdoorsman dude and he's not going to bay the slightest attention to the name.
