I Give You PB-Complete!


I've finally finished PB-Complete!  I've come a long way since I blogged about completing my collection of Pearl Bracelets here.  After I got my quilt back from longarm quilter Krista Ellis, I created the binding with Bright Star (white) using my AccuQuilt Go to cut the strips.  This is the first quilt I've made of this size and with binding.  It seemed like an eternity to hand-sew it on.

We went out to take pictures of the quilt and I thought I was in good shape but then I remembered that I needed to make a sleeve and a label.  At 3 am Sunday morning, it was all complete.  And to top it off, I fell asleep under my quilt and got up at 8 am!

I am so happy and proud that I finished it.  It will be on display at the BMQG show as part of the Lowell Quilt Festival at Appleton Mills.  For more info, visit http://www.lowellquiltfestival.org/partners.html.

The description that will accompany my quilt at the show... Ahem.

I am obsessed with Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelet fabric line and I am obsessed with hexagons!  When I saw that Jacquie Gering was teaching a class on making a hexagon quilt at QuiltCon, I knew a hexagon quilt would be the perfect pairing for Pearl Bracelet. 

To organize the colors, I decided to use the seasons.  Each season is represented by three rows in this order:  Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.  Lucky for me there are 28 colors (plus white) so each season is represented with seven colors and the border is white.  The fact that the colors range from light to dark from top to bottom is a happy accident!

Tina - it looks so great! I love that line, too. In fact, I carry it in my store but I am really sad that they have not re-released anything with the darker dots - just the white dots.

Andover is releasing a tone on tone version in the fall, too so that will be exciting :-)

I love your PB hexies! The graduation of colour across the quilt is great! I'm loving doing my hexies slowly over the summer, I'm hooked! :o)
