Quilt #16 in my Through Ellyn's Eyes series is pretty simple to explain.... It's simply my initials, EHZ, in a bold, graphic design. I drew it up on graph paper first, then set to piecing. It came together pretty quickly. The only tricky part was getting the half square triangles in the angle of the Z to line up properly. Yes, there was a seam ripper involved. But the end result was worth it.
This quilt was made with Kona black, red, chartreuse and capri. It was quilted on my domestic machine with a walking foot and big stitch hand bound in red.
It isn't lost on me that my 6 month project is quickly coming to the end. I will continue working on this series until the end of the year... which is SOON! I will miss it when I finish but I've learned so much doing it. I can't wait to share my revelations with you. I'm also putting together a guild lecture all about it. I hope some of you will invite me to share what I've learned with your guilds.
