It's a finish!
A donation quilt.
64 x 88
The traditional block name is Arrowhead Puzzle. Bonnie Hunter made an eight inch version of the block popular and called it Garlic Knot.
Last year I used 2.5 inch scraps and made eight inch blocks as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project.
When I sat down to quilt I had no idea how I was going to quilt it. I first quilted in some lines on the diagonal between blocks and then just quilted some wonky lemon peels on the diagonal through the centers of the blocks but then decided that was not enough quilting so quilted in some of those wonky lemon peels on each side of the center lemon peels.
You know it's not easy to wrangle a quilt this size through the 7.5 inch throat on my sewing machine but it is not impossible.
One of Murphy's Laws of quilting states that if you are going to accidentally zig or zag while wrangling large quilts it will be a zig with light thread in a dark space or a zag with dark thread in a light space.
But if anyone is eyeballing a quilt for things like that and they aren't the quilt police then I say they have too much time on their hands. After a good wash those things almost disappear and a recipient will never notice.
As I quilt I always have to put a pin where I need to bury knots. If I don't then I miss some places later on when I have a knot burying ritual.
I take a long break after every bobbin is emptied in order to move around these old bones.
Oh...one last tip...if you have long hair be sure to wear it in a bun when quilt wrangling otherwise it might accidentally fall in front of the needle and get sewn into the quilt.
The backing came from a friend.
Three cheers for finishes!
