Yay - I'm so pleased I managed to finish a quilt this year.
I started my Kismet Kiss quilt back in April 2021 and as usual, with my quilts, it has been a slow process.
Originally I had planned a totally random scrappy quilt, but decided to make it a little more cohesive using colours from a beautiful floral arrangement as my colour palette. I think I managed to work within the restrictions quite well.
The English paper pieced blocks (EPP) were supposed to number about 48, but I got sick of doing them and stopped at 25. These were all pieced together in January this year . Borders from Kaffe Fasset fabrics were added to make the quilt a useable size, and a multi fabric pieced backing in colours similar to those I used used in the quilt front was made. I decided to hand quilt it using a deep purple perle thread, my stitches are definitely not even, but really no one will be looking that closely ( hope) and I do think that finished is better than perfect.
The binding is an orange grunge fabric with colours found in the quilt too.
I am really happy with how this quilt has turned out, and as yet haven't decided if it will be a keeper or gift.
