It's back! In true community spirit, the Community Quilt has returned from its summer holiday at Trudi's! Trudi put her incredible quilting design skills to work and made the Community Quilt just gorgeous. She took what I had in mind of a nearly impossible quilting suggestion and translated it into actual quilting. I could not be happier.
This quilt is about 96 inches square, so she's a brute. Here you see about 2/3 of her hanging from the clothes line. I couldn't make the line go any higher to show you the full quilt! Eeek! Thank goodness Trudi could quilt something this size - I tried and failed miserably!
Can you see the quilting in each white space? Trudi has quilted in four trinity symbols, but seeing them now in person they look a whole lot like cathedral windows blocks some times. It really depends on how the quilt catches my eye.
I started piecing this quilt back in June 2011. It amazes me how much my quilting life/style/tastes have changed. This is quite traditional and subdued compared to many things I like to make now. That being said, this is one of my two favorite quilts of all time. I am simply thrilled with how Trudi has quilted it. Thank you, Miss Trudi. I can not wait to get a binding on and finish off this 18 month labor of love.
