New York Skylines

Started and finished this quilt in November 2016, but had difficulty in knowing how to hang a large circular quilt.  Had about 3 suggestions from quilters, but none of them worked.  So, it sat over my stair rails until I made this decision.  Last week on August 6, 2017, I simply pinned it up with push pins, so that is how you see it in the photo.  It is large and heavy for a 5' little lady.  cheeky But looks great on my upstairs wall.

Pattern directions were easy to follow, but took a bit of time and space to put it all together.  I added the approximately 9" border and additional gold rick-rack to give the overall look a bit of a spark.  It required 6 yards of fabric plus the purchase of a 25" triangle ruler.   There are 24 panels, each 7" wide, in the main circle of the quilt.  You had to be precise in cutting to ensure proper spacing of each panel.  I wanted to have a large black background, to which I would affix the quilt, but that is another challenge I may face in the future.  Or not.cool
