This was another gifted panel. The designs by J. Wecker Frisch are quite unique and whimsical and they all make me smile. This is the panel as it can be purchased.
I cut apart the images. I dug into my stash to see what I had in the way of black and white checks. There were more than I thought and I decided they didn’t all need to be white. There is even a harlequin print in the mix.
And then the evils of a panel came to life. One reason I am not a big fan of panels is that they never seem to be printed or woven straight. Or maybe that’s just my luck. Then I added insult to injury choosing to frame each image with the checks. I liked them...even without sashing.
But sashing won out. It bothered me all during the making that the quilt might turn wonky and prove to be undisguiseable or unforgiving. I kept along with it anyway...hoping...
This panel was really fun to work on despite its challenges.
Binding choice was easy. No surprise here, right?!
I had to include the words that ran alongside the panel.
I can’t believe that I forgot to work the selvedge into the quilt design! How fun is that selvedge!
This wall quilt is quite large, measuring 51” X 30”.
Ta-Da! All done. If you don’t look too close, the wonk isn’t too noticeable.
(At the time of the photo, I hadn’t yet gotten a dowel for hanging)
Did you notice the panel has a sewing theme?
On to the next project...........
