So I finished the Christmas Strip Twist Quilt on Tuesday night. To explain the delay in its reveal... since then, every night when I got home from work it's been unseasonably dark, and the photos that I've been wanting to take to show you came out really bad. So this morning, when I couldnt sleep, I got up early and finished all my chores, then went outside to see if there was any sun. No dice on the sun front I'm afraid, but at least there was daylight.
I was a little worried that the back ended up looking like a sleeping bag, you know those horrible nylon ones with the big chunky metal zips, circa 1986! But N has assured me that it doesn't. I went for something a bit different with the straight line quilting this time. Originally, I started with just the diagonals, and did a quater inch line down either side. This looked really good, but it wasnt quite quilted enough for my liking. I then went on to sew concentric squares in the main blocks.
