Description

26.5" x 50" (23.5" x 47" on frame)


Some are random images from web. The English Bulldog that looks like an oven ready chicken is all mine.Tried a knife edge binding for the first time. Pinned to a frame as they seem to be the 'in thing' for prints right now.

Whatthebobbin

Awesome!

Sewzalot

The quilt is amazing. It is visually so great to look at. Will that awesome work of art be entered in any contests or shows?

PiecedByPeace

Aw-sucks Thank you all for the lovely comments blush +Sewzalotthe the only competition I have ever entered was on this site as I don't know any quilting groups or organizations here in Germany so it will just get to go on the wall until it is hidden under another.

Quiltdiva , Well, I'm so glad I got to see it! And can I ask... how does one create something like that? Was there something that inspired you? Did you draw it first? How do you do that? More info.. please...

True

Sewzalot ditto all your questions I just find this kind of quilt amazing!

It all came from a little random idea. I am artistically challenged so there was really nothing clever going on in my head LOL (one can live in hope) My daughter lives in London and although I am not the most patriotic person I do like London icons. Used the UK/London as a starting point because I was completely devoid of any other ideas of what to make next. My first plan was to just pick one London icon and do something different with it (it was going to be a telephone box fish tank) but after googling icons I ended up with a few that tickled my fancy. Them ending up on top of each other way just seemed a simple idea. I did place them to the side to be a little quirky. It then it just named itself.

Wonderful- my daughter lived in England for a year and a half and would love this0 hope you consider making a pattern and selling it- I'll be in line;)))))

That looks so much fun. Random ideas are great for coming up with design ideas, especially if you don't get too serious about them. By the way the Festival of Quilts, Birmingham takes foreign entries ;)

Can't believe you are artistically challenged!!!!!! I am in love with London and all things British so this quilt calls to me. Love the way you quilted it. I'm trying to learn how to do pebbling and am jealous at what a good job you did.
