I wasn't going to show this quilt until I realized it is the first completed from start to finish project of 2011, so here it is. As I mentioned in a previous post, I plan to make something from every quilt magazine I receive. The February/March issue of Quilters Newsletter has a feature on quilts that were made by inspiration of the Mosaic Tiles of Andalusa, Spain, specifically the Alhambra Palace in Granada. I didn't want a quilt with a white background, as beautiful as those quilts are, so I used fabric I had on hand to make something I needed, a table cover. This is the quilt pattern I meant to follow:
My quilt looks like a fifth cousin removed a few times, if that's the correct reference.
And as in life, it isn't exactly what you thought it would be, but it has it's merits.
I wanted a coffee table cover and I have one.
And I have an accomplishment.
That's it for now. More shoveling tomorrow, as another Nor'easter is hitting us right now. This is the third snowfall this week. I laughed yesterday when I received a call from the senior citizens group I joined to inform me that the February meeting was cancelled. Not taking any chances:)
Hope all is well with you.
God Bless You.
