Well I finished the Isle of Skye quilt yesterday and washed and blocked it. Today I have to sew on a hanging sleeve and a label. I think it looks like it will hang flat enough that I will not need to put a sleeve on the bottom of the quilt for a piece of wood to make it hang flat.
So what is story of this quilt. We took the photo on our visit to Scotland in the summer of 2004. I took a class from Susan Brittingham at Quilt University called “On Land and Sea” in the summer of 2005. I got as far as the foreground in front of the houses and stalled on the quilt. For too many years I said that I was going to finish it, but this summer I decided enough was enough. My main problem was the rocks in the foreground and not having a fabric that worked for them. This spring I bought some Stonehenge fabrics and they were perfect. So maybe I was waiting for these fabrics to finish the quilt!
The size of the quilt is 37 inches by 26 inches. Now I have to figure out where I am going to hang it.
Now I have to figure out what I am going to name the quilt.
- “The Isle of Skye”
- “Summer on Skye”
- “Over the Sea to Skye”
- “My 6 Year Vacation on Skye!”
