Infinity is a Flimsy!

Infinity is pieced! She'll be heading to the long arm quilter in January. This quilt was so much easier to make than I thought it was going to be, it wasn't hard. If you can read a map, you can make this quilt.

Here she is! You can really see the individual pieces.  That's not so noticeable in real life.

She measures 53" by 58". 

The fabrics were for this quilt were purchased at Yoder Department Store in Shipshewana, Indiana. My friend Nancy helped with the selection and she did a wonderful job guiding me. The black is a batik and came from the Cotton Corner which is just across the parking lot from Yoder's.

If you are a long time reader of my blog you will notice something different about this quilt, there isn't any blue in this quilt at all! My daughter was along when I bought the fabrics. She was shocked.

After I got the fabrics home and cut into the strips, I started second guessing myself, would they be bright enough?, should I have bought all batik fabrics? She turned out just fine. 

The fabrics in the 2nd picture look more pink than they really are.

The hardest thing about making this quilt was the black
fabric, it made my eyes so tired. If you have trouble falling asleep at night, I suggest working with black fabric. That will do the trick, it did to me anyway.

Here is a link to last week's post about Infinity. If you are interested in information about the pattern link here.

Very pretty. Love the colors. The black may have been hard to work with, but it looks terrific.

This is a gorgeous quilt. The center is just glowing. I've recently worked on a quilt with jet black background, quilted with black thread and it was quite a pain.

I found it funny that you said if you can read a map you can do this pattern. I gave a 20 something fellow classmate a ride home the other day and he was trying to navigate without Google maps and was really struggling with which road to turn on and whether to go left or right. Ended up going so far out of our way and adding an extra 20 mins to the trip. It was a hilarious adventure. He had never heard of an atlas book of maps.
