The work that went into this quilt is unbelieveable. Each piece is a rough version of a trapezoid. First of all...the time it took to cut each piece (especially a trapezoid piece) as they were cut with scissors not with a rotary cutter on a cutting mat. Second, each small piece was hand sewn together (maybe one of these days I will count the number of pieces that make up this quilt top). Third, the overall quilt is in the shape of a trapezoid...I don't have a clue how the quilter made that happen...but she did. I paid $80 for this quilt top and planned to sell it on ebay. But I couldn't sell it...instead I bought fabric for the back and the border and sent it off to my long-arm quilter Lynn. Of my 27 quits this is in the top 4 of my favorites. It is currently on my bed.
The picture below shows you that the shape of the overall quilt is a trapezoid. I know you may be thinking that it looks like a trapezoid because of the photo...not so. My long-arm quilter Lynn will validate that it is a trapezoid...something she had to adjust for when it was on the big quilting machine.
