Arcadia wall quilt

Share it Please
It only took 4 years for me to finish this little 26" x 40" wall hanging. I had the idea in my head for a long while, but only recently had the patience, time, and fortitude to make the design happen.

The part that had me dragging my heels was the middle quilting. The diamonds are 1" square and required a lot of starting and stopping and hiding thread ends. The quilting was as big a bear as I thought it would be.

But, of course, now that the work is done, I'm happy to have persevered through all that quilting. Plus, that's one less quilt top in the work-in-progress pile. The fabric is Arcadia by Sanae and came out in 2009.
