It’s Finished!

I’m going to try and take a better photo outside but for now, I HAVE FINISHED THE SUFFOLK PUFF/YOYO QUILT!

Yay me πŸ™‚

Double bed Suffolk puff quilt

Begun: Last week of April 2007
Finished: August 10th 2007

Fabrics: Mostly cotton oddments and offcuts from my projects, other people’s offcuts and unused fabrics from the op shop and oddments and discarded fashion samples from the Reverse Garbage Creative Reuse Co-Op in Marrickville.

Details: 1,600 suffolk puffs made with the 45mm Clover Quick YoYo Maker – 40 puffs wide x 40 puffs high

Made as a wedding present for my brother & his fiancΓ© for the 19th August 2007
Number of seasons of Farscape watched in order to retain sanity while sewing all the little puffs together: 2.5 (plus a season each of Torchwood, Dr Who, Battlestar Galactica and Stargate SG1)

Will I ever make such a large project in such a short time frame again? Hell no!

    That looks amazing. Congrats on finishing it on time.
    Now maybe you should go post a short “I’m alive” post on the glb-knit list because someone was wondering what happened to you.

    Congratulations! What a lot of work. It was worth it, it is goreous and a very special gift. Must say I like your choice of viewing to keep you sane.

    Wow! That is an incredible and very lovely quilt in a prodigiously small amount of time! I hope your brother and his wife were suitably thrilled. πŸ™‚
