It was very tricky to piece- each diamond and triangle had to be cut individually and carefully sewn. The green petals are all hand appliqued.
I'm not yet sure how I will quilt it, but I think I am going to bind it in off-white muslin to minimize distraction from the design.
After completing one square of this pattern, I have huge respect for anyone who completes a full size quilt!
If you are interested in trying one yourself, I found my templates/instructions for the Whig's Defeat pattern on this site.
|Those white diamonds were hard to get right! The pink and dotted fabric plays tricks |
on the eyes and adds a bit more visual interest, I think.
The finished quilt should be about 20" square.
|Here is the back! Lots of little pieces!|

I hope to have this quilted soon, so check back for the finished result!
