Celestial Gardens quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How it turned out - the fabric selection and placement worked well for this project and I am very happy with the results. A good thing! What advice would you give someone starting this project? You need to have a stick-to-it attitude and be able to follow directions well, especially if you've never done a paper-pieced project before. I machine pieced the top but hand quilted the rest. It took me about three months to complete this queen-sized project, doing a little at a time just about every day.

What you will need

  • I used various fabric purchased in Costa Rica
  • where I live

Your quilt is gorgeous. The colors are perfect . I just started my first paper pieced quilt by Judy Neimeyer and you are right about the "stick to it" attitude. You have inspired me to continue on and finish my quilt
