Botanical Sketches Art Quilt is Complete

Yup, I started this Tuesday morning, and I was taking pictures Wednesday at 6 pm! (OK, I’ve still got to add the label and hand stitch the bottom of the rod pocket)

I’m happy, it looks about like what I imagined it. I hemmed and hawed for about 10-15 minutes over sashing, no sashing, but again, I gave myself permission to just decide and move on. Looking at it this morning all pieced together, there were a couple of blocks that I would have switched upside down….but too late!

Botanical Sketches: 35" x 38", all fabric dyed by me, botanicals free motion machine sketched on my Juki TL-98Q

Here’s my favorite pair of blocks:

And some outdoor detail shots:

It feels great to have this done! I’m also amazed that I got some halfway decent shots so late in the day! Let’s see what else I can get done on the list!

After one…more…picture…
