My Nearly Insane Journey is over!

I managed to take some quick photos at hand in day for the Festival of Quilts Show in Auckland.
The photos are not the best but I'm hoping some-one can take some better photos for me at the show.
I won't be at the show this year, for the first time in about 20 years as I'm going on a Quilt Tour to Canada, USA and Japan. I will be in Houston at their huge show, but am also a little disappointed I won't be seeing NI at our show after all that work.
I started piecing this quilt in June 2010 and finished it in July 2015 with a lot of down time in between.
A couple of the photos are a bit blurry I'm sorry to say!






'My Nearly Insane Journey'


Unfortunately the quilting doesn't show up in the photo, so I tried to take some closeups. I had to be quick, as they were photographing all the quilts for the show.

WOW! What a truly beautiful piece! This quilt is definitely not for the faint hearted, I don't know if I will ever be brave enough to tackle this incredible pattern. Well done you! Love the quilting too.

The finished quilt looks fabulous Sue and you should be really proud of yourself. Have a wonderful trip and enjoy Houston. When I was there in 2009 I was really taken with all the antique quilts for sale and the antique sewing accessories. Have fun!!

What a lovely quilt. Isn't a finish a wonderful feeling? I'm starting my Insane Journey in January with several other friends, have no idea how long it is going to take. My friend said 2 years, we'll see. Enjoy your trip to Houston. Gretchen
