In my last update, I was quite unhappy with my quilting, but I’d found inspiration from vintage Welsh quilts. That caused me to add some echos to my rather spare looking pumpkin seeds. I also decided to ignore the piecing in the large half square triangle border and try my hand at a Welsh inspired border.
The center got a simple crosshatch.
I didn’t take full photos before washing. The blue marking pen I used was very distracting and I couldn’t wait to get it washed out. Here is a closeup of the Welsh style border after washing. Honestly, the quilting hardly shows.
I learned so much making this quilt! And I love it. Even if the quilting hardly shows and it took forever.
As a reminder, this is the original quilt that inspired my version.
Mine is much smaller, only 54 inches square. I used a toile I had in my stash for the back.
