Jane Stickle Quilt is a Flimsy at Last!


I added the final triangle border to my Jane Stickle quilt yesterday while watching/listening to Bonnie Hunter’s Quilt-Cam.  Even though the daunting task of quilting still lies ahead, it feels like a huge weight has finally been lifted from my shoulders.

Speaking of a huge weight, this flimsy has lots of seams and thread and is very heavy.  I did not want to try to mount it on my design wall without help, so I spread it on our guest bed for this picture.

It is just beautiful! I don't think I have seen one done in colorful batiks before. I hope some of the scraps I gave you made their way into the quilt.

Absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn't even know how to begin quilting this, with all those seams. It's going to be a glorious finish.

Oh, Mary! It's lovely. It's so exciting to see your quilt top. Wow! I can hardly wait to see how you decide to quilt it. What kind of batting will you use since it's already so heavy. I'm so excited for you :)
