Fragments: The Last Quilt in A Long Line


Last One This is the last quilt in the Blue House series. By the time I made this one there weren’t many fragments left. The pile of remaining scraps gave me the inspiration for this quilt’s name, FRAGMENTS. If you look closely you will find tiny remnants of the original quilt. They are kind of hard to find but with a little effort you will discover there whereabouts.

Size Doesn’t Matter The quilt, while small in stature, makes a big statement. It is a visual reminder of how even the tiniest of scraps can become a very important part of a much larger invention.

Time to Finish Just like the quilt called SPLIT PERSONALITY this quilt or wall hanging (what ever you want to call it) has been buried in a pile of UFQ’s (unfinished quilts). When it finally resurfaced I was more than ready to see it through to the final quilting steps. Since this project is quite small, measuring only 23″ x 36,” it didn’t take very long to quilt it. I kept the number of stitch patterns to a minimum to allow the quilt piecing to take center stage. Now that the quilting is finished all that is left is a binding and a hanging sleeve. Take a look at the photos below.

The End of a Series This brings to a close my BLUE HOUSE series. While it’s been a long journey it certainly has been a fruitful one. So many wonderful quilts came out of my original quilt top. I’ve had a great time sharing my journey of re-creation and I hope you have enjoyed it as well.
