I finished this quilt recently. I named it ‘Big Bang’ as it reminded me of cosmic explosions and intergalactic phenomena and for a more prosaic reason in that I had just watched the entire boxed set of Big Bang Theory in the space of around 4 weeks. As quilty people probably know, the pattern is actually New York Beauty. I used fabric foundations for the blocks and embellished it with beading as I had been recently inspired by a mini workshop at the Creative stitches show. I love the idea and practice of beading but am not really a jewellery sort of person so needed to find a way to use the lovely colours and textures of the beads in my work. I need to become a better photographer!
Here is a shot showing some of the beading detail.
I love this quilt pattern and have many more ideas for it when I have the time. I am gradually going to show my other finished quilts and their stories.
