It's finished!!! My guild friend, Lois' beautiful Creation quilt is finished! I must say that this quilt took me an extraordinarily long time to do. I had to create six of the designs from scratch: Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, central star bursts, Alpha and Omega. These were then outlined in gold metallic thread and placed between the pieced stars, all except the Alpha, Omega and Earth. Those were three of the four corners surrounding the central red and yellow fireball. The fourth corner there was a Celtic symbol for the Trinity.
One of my favorite additions was this moon figure, which I cut from a larger moon and stars block. Other cut designs from that block included comets and shooting stars.
So now I'm taking the rest of the day off, having already cleaned the house this morning while waiting for my customer to come to pick up her quilt. But first, I'll show you what darling hubby did for me this past weekend.
