Very Scrappy New York Beauty Wallhanging
It has been two weeks since any postings on the BB so I'll jump in and show you what I've been working on just to see if anyone is still reading our BB. Once I have sandwiched and quilted this top it will be my entry for the 2010 Hoffman Challenge.
The strip of light aqua print you see on the far right edge of the photo is the HC theme fabric for this year ... it is called "Treasures of the East". I'm calling my entry "Buried Treasure" because there are nine pieces of the Challenge fabric mixed in with 171 other fabrics to create this 37" x 37" wall hanging. The pattern is Karen K. Stone's "Lady Liberty Goes to Hawaii", copyright 1996, before Karen started making her really fancy paper piecing patterns. I reduced the size of Karen's patterns on a copy machine to meet the size requirements for the Hoffman Challenge which made piecing the arcs a bit of a headache. I'm going to use gold metallic thread for quilting this thing once I figure out how to quilt it.
Any suggestions on how to quilt it would be very welcome .... if there are still any BBers reading our Bulletin Board, that is. Should I use an overall design or focus on each segment of the arc patterns?
