I finished my DQS7 quilt and it is on its way to my partner right now.   


This quilt was a bit of a stretch for me.  It was my first try at liberated quilting. 


And my first black and white with a splash of color.


I’ve wanted to try both for a while now.  I was so glad to get a partner with these preferences.


It forced me to jump in with both feet.  There might have been a little tripping when I jumped but I got the hang of it eventually. 


By the time I was done I decided that I might have had some fun and might even try it again. 


I hope my partner likes it because it was really hard to let this one go!

It looks great! I'm sure your partner will love it. I just posted about the same thing - who would have thought letting them go would be so hard. lol

Your contrasting colors really worked well in this quilt. Great job!

Very neat quilt! I'm sure your partner will love it!

It's great to have a challenge that helps you stretch out a bit! I like your quilt label, too- where did you get them?

Candace said...

Your partner is going to love it! I would have a hard time letting it go, too! Beatutiful, Trisha!

So pretty! I love the red/white/black combo!

I love it! I am sure your swap partner will too.

I'm your partner, and I LOVE it! Just back from our bee's retreat, and what a thrill to find your package waiting at home.

Your wonky log cabin is great--and I love the liberated Flying Geese, each with its own angle of ascent.

I have been eyeing that large B&W floral and so LOVE have a place to see it every day. Your quilt is centered on our diningroom table so I can enjoy it with every meal.

AND a lovely B&W&red hand-made card came with it, That too is resting in a place of honor--so much fun with the ribbon and the cow!

Thank you, thank you Trish!

Wish I was your partner! Abolutely ADORE the B&W w/Red hints & stitching. LOVE the carefree triangles down the left, too.

Awesome work, lady!

a first timer
