Here is Andee's " Day and Night" quilt with the binding already sewn to the front ready for her to stitch down on the back. It's so large-king size-that it doesn't quite hang clear of the floor
I couldn't bring myself to just quilt "all over" without regard for the block design, so I had to come up with some way to quilt the blocks separately and the SID I saw on a couple other Day and Night quilts simply wasn't in consideration. I would have been bored to tears by the time I got halfway through!
So I quilted "line dancing" with these curlicues in the star blocks and another version of curlicues on the octagons-
it has an optical illusion thing with a secondary design so the octagons can be difficult to see but they are there, just squint! If that doesn't work, click on the pic to enlarge and I think you'll see it then.
The back is a black and white print so nothing much shows up there.
This is for Andee's cousin, a wedding gift and I heard that Tara is pretty anxious to get her hands on it now that she has had a sneak peek on Andee's blog!
It's very dramatic design, a great deal of time and energy expended in the construction so it deserved a complimentary quilting and I hope I have achieved that!
