It's been a long time coming ....!

I must say that I do like the way it turned out. It sort of makes up for all the pattern problems I had.

Ta dah... my Women of Influence BOM Quilt.....!

It's done and hanging in the Shoppe!

I couldn't get a full picture of the quilt, as it's quite large (92 x 116)!

It's machine pieced and machine appliquéd.

The pattern is now available from the book Women of Influence 12 Leaders of the Suffrage Movement by Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith. You can read more about this BOM it in a prior post here.

I used this project to push my machine quilting comfort zone. I don't know if you can see some of the details, but I have some echoing going on in 2 (two) of the machine appliquéd blocks and lots of "in the ditch work" AKA ruler work etc.

Let me tell you, after machine quilting this project, Penelope and I are getting quite comfortable with each other! ;o) I can not even begin to tell you the number of hours I spent quilting it! And, I enjoyed every minute of it. Well, okay, some minutes were filled with colourful adjectives! LOL

I've even machine embroidered a label for it!

It just needs to get sewn on! A minor technical detail! lol

It's been a long time coming.... but I did have some skeletons in my quilting closet to work out! ;o)

Thank you for visiting my little corner in cyberspace.

Keep well! Cheers!
