skyfall finish

skyfall is finished! . . .  DONE! . . .  my second and hopefully last kingsize quilt.

A little history:

I hope you got to watch Skyfall with 007 this past year . . . 

The movie takes you back to Scotland where 007 grew up.

Though they didn't bother to tell you that it was the ugliest time of the year there.

This is what it looks like in the summer, after lots of rain. . .

Glencoe Scotland . . . it's gorgeous, absolutely breathtaking, a bit eery yet spiritual and very historic, with some tragic stories you can read about here.

ANYWAYS . . .  That's where this quilt gets it's name from.

You can read about it's making here and here

 and about it's quiting here.

The pattern came from Carrie Nelson's "Spice of Life Quilts" book.  You can see the inside of those pages here.

  3. That is absolutely gorgeous! I have been wanting to make the quilt on the cover of A Spice of Life... I have been "stashing" tans and blues for this very purpose!

  6. This is a lovely quilt! I am assuming that you quilted it yourself - and that is no small feat with a king-sized quilt! Great job!

  7. What a beautiful quilt! I love the colours and name of your quilt. I, too, am a fan of Miss Rosie's. Loved the movie Skyfall and would love to go to Scotland sometime. Lovely finish!

  8. Your quilt is beautiful. I was intrigued by the graph paper you were using. Did you quilt right on it and then tear it away?

  9. What a project to finish! Way to go! The quilting is beautiful.

  10. Mom Quilter - that is the quilt top with a grid drawn on with disappearing ink (abt 4 hrs). It's quick and pretty precise, and no picking out errors.

  11. It turned out fantastic! So pretty, and love your quilting.

  12. This turned out gorgeous! I love the fabric, pattern and the quilting is amazing! Great job!
