The pattern was from the Karen K Stone quilt book. I made it a couple of years ago and it was my first attempt at curved paper-piecing. Not convinced I could machine quilt it without masses of puckers, I reverted to hand quilting it.
It was a brilliant excuse to go wild with Kaffe Fasset fabrics and although some of the curves are not perfect, I still love it.
I got so hacked off picking all the paper out that I had a 'bright idea.' I completely soaked the quilt top and then hung it on the washing line because for some non-logical reason I decided it would be easier to pick soggy paper off it.
And so I left it on the washing line for a day or two and the wind helped spread all the paper bits all over my garden and next door's garden too just for good measure.
I still love it though.
