Colorwash I is Bound, Labeled, Done!


I wanted to be able to count this as a completion in 2012, and was happy to finish it yesterday.  I’ve added a hanging sleeve.  It will hang for a while in the area usually reserved for my seasonal quilts, until I can set up a hanger in my sewing room.  It's a good reminder of the colorwheel. 
 
Most of the information regarding this project has been covered in previous posts, but in summary:  This quilt is almost entirely comprised of fabrics that Wanda Hanson sold as kits last summer, all taken from her stash.  I substituted a few pieces as I was putting it together.  It measures about 29" square and has 196 different fabrics.  Both Wanda and Debbie helped me along with the process via comments and e-mails.  I quilted it by stitching in the ditch with lots of thread color changes.

I’ve named it Colorwash I... not a very original name, but it is optimistic as it assumes there will be a “II”  sometime down the road.
