Familiar Finished

Hello friends,

I have finally completed this quilt.

I started making this in early 2018. If you know me, you’ll know that a lot happened shortly after that!

I’d started quilting it on the longarm, but while I had my treatment, it was taken off and put away. It made it to the top of the things to finish pile a few weeks ago. Since then I’ve been quilting it on my regular sewing machine (there’s something else on the longarm at the moment).

Its name has changed, it had a working title of The Girl with the Eagle. Its proper title is now Familiar, although I suspect it’ll still be referred to as The Eagle Quilt!

Lots of heavy quilting on this one, most of it black on black so it’s a tricky one to photograph. Really enjoy the composition on this one – I love that the focus is squeezed right at the top.

There are more photos in the Portfolio section of the site here.

There’s also my original blog posts about this piece on my old blog Here and Here.

The quilt will be part of my exhibition Everything We Are at Festival of Quilts 2023.

See you there,

Laura x
