"Plain Spoken" now on the bed

Today I finished this quilt, begun about a year and a half ago.  It's a version of a pattern by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr, "Plain Spoken," published in their book, Modern Quilt Workshop; the fabric is Kaffe Fassett shot cotton.  I've written several earlier posts about the quilt, so if you'd like to read about the quilt in process, you can find those posts here.  

I've been working on the hand-quilting since last July; it has been nice to start each day with a half-hour or so of this quilt on my lap.  

Backing and binding are hand-dyed fabric.


  1. Yes, I remember this one. Isn't it wonderful to have it finished and in place!! I LOVE shot cotton!!

  2. A very "sunny" quilt due to all the green/gold & yellow... perfect to wake up to in the morning. And how nice to be able to have visible each day a quilt that you worked on for so long!
