"Bridging the Centuries" by Wendy

I wanted to share "MY Quilt" with you. This is Bridging the Centuries. It was from the sampler quilts series of  American Patchwork Quilting December 2000 Issue. It is a mirror image quilt, and it is mine, all mine. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. It consists of six blocks from six different issues. Now this posed a problem because all I had was the December issue. Sooo I did a lot of guessing and designing of my own. The end results is what you see.

I have included the picture from the magazine so you can have a comparison.

This quilt is the reason I do not do Flying geese.  The big flower blocks that you see are hand stencil painted.  I made it a double sided quilt as well. The back is pieced using the checkerboard block you see on the front. I brought huge checkers and we lay it on the floor and play checkers.  

Here are some more closeup photos:

    

 

     

God Bless

Great job Wendy.  It turned out very well for having to use a little guess work, didn't it?  You have a lot more patience than I with hand quilting.  I'm just too clutzy

I like the way the flying geese & pink and purple blocks move your eye through the quilt. Nice work! The oversized checkers sounds like fun :-)
