Map quilt finished
This must be something of a record for me this year. I have finished my map quilt! The quilting was quite straight forward. I made it pretty dense as I remembered the fields where we lived in Northamptonshire which is a big arable area. The finished quilt is thirteen inches square which was a very manageable size. - really a journal quilt. Now I have to think hard about how I can make map quilts that are more 'me' and less Alicia. Changing the colours is easy but at this point I have not thought about the techniques. Interestingly, my husband said he thought they were more 'aerial views' than maps so I am turning that over in my mind too.
