V and T

  
This is JOINT project between TONYA and I, 
that I have been working on since my visit to see her in August.

I recalled her working on the STAR portions when she was in Paris, and I asked her, 
"Whatever happened to that large star you were working on..."
She dug it out, and I nearly fell over, It's SO beautiful!  

I said you have to finish that!
She said, "well, I don't like WHY seams!  
I said, " do!"
"I will finish it!"


She decided she liked the orange/cheddar with bits of color thrown in, 
so I set to doing what I love to do.. MAKING HUGE PIECES OF FABRIC...  
The squares in the corners are 23" X 23"

Now to tackle those Y seams!

I saw YIPPEEE!
She says, WEEEEEEE!


I'm working on a similar one for myself...  
But for this one, I am so thrilled to have worked on it...
It's a real beauty!  Thanks T!

I was just wondering what had happened to her string pieced star...I love what you did to it....and I think two-headed quilting makes for beautiful quilts. it looks great.

Unbelievable!! That is one gorgeous quilt. I love the star, good thing you made Tonya finish it. And the orange 'fabric' you made is genius. Such a great idea. Love, love, love it!

I have never seen a more arresting star. It makes you stop and gap at it. Absolutely stunning! I have never done a Y seam, but I think I may have to learn how. Beautiful. beautiful.

Gadzooks!! This is so great!! Good for you, helping her out. This one is far to good to sit in some drawer. Woo-hoo!

Tonya R said...

Wowee, powee. looks so fantastic, V! What she didn't tell you was that I was thinking of just going plain white or light yellow. V said that would be waaaay too boring. was she ever right. Now she gets to do the "easy" part of putting those massive pieces together - with YYYYYs.

The Star: So many diamonds made from so many pieces - unbelievable! The Ground: Looks like an artist took out her big brush & oils - gorgeous! Together: So much movement. It's wonderful!

Ellen said...

This is just incredible. It must be awesome in person. I love the cheddar
background with the bits of color. What a striking piece!

I was looking at T's blog, asked her what happened to her star that she was working on in Paris and up it pops. I love this and the orange definitely makes it zing.
