Next one finished


My McKenna Ryan quilt is as good as finished now as well. I just need to sew a few wooden beads to join the wee bird houses together. I know I've got some here somewhere, just have to ferret them out.

This quilt was started 3 years ago, and is entirely made from appliqued pieces. The top middle block with the cottage used well in excess of 300 different appliqued pieces alone. It will be the last Large quilt of McKenna Ryan's I make, I think I would only ever make a single block and frame that with sashings, from now on.

I'm pleased to see it finished, it was time to move on! :D

What a spectacular job! I have seen her quilts and simply because of the amount of pieces I would not even think about tackling such a project!

Three years ! That in itself is a very large, creative journey. The piece is absolutely lovely and is bound to be treasured for generations.

HOLY COW! What an amazing quilt! And getting it done in 3 years is pretty good. Me, I'd have one block done and the rest left as good intentions for "someday". :)

verification word, "ghter"-
as in, the end of laughter. Could be the end of daughter too, also lighter, brighter, all-nighter... haha. Nothing like a brain teaser as a bonus to a post!
