I just really wanted to post this quilt, since it has been almost a month since I’ve talked to you, and since it feels like I’ve worked on this quilt forever. I finished one secret gift, but mostly summer activities got in the way. All finished now!
This is Charlotte Hawk’s 2017 mystery quilt, “Surrounded by Scraps“.
The back looks gray from a distance, but it’s really a tiny green and pink and purple patterned batik.
I quilted a grid of straight lines in the areas between the blocks, using silver Bottom Line thread. Then I used a variegated green So Fine to quilt feathers in the center of the blocks and on the border.
This one is staying right here on our bed!

Even though it’s scrappy, it has a soft peaceful cohesiveness to it. Really lovely!
