I would like to introduce my newest quilt "Pillar of Fire" it was created using my Helix pattern (At least that is what I am going to call it for now). A few weeks ago I talked about the creation of this quilt in the post
My Orange and Gray Needs a New Name! As such I needed a name. I loved the suggestions and all of them would have fit great. I am going to call my pattern Helix. This quilt its definitely a Pillar of Fire.
This quilt has more then 30 colors in it. The blocks are 2 1/2 inch blocks of many different shades of orange, yellow, and red. The back of this quilt was a solid piece of orange fabric I do not remember what it was originally bought for, but it was decided that it was way too bright for it. But I think it fits this quilt well.
In my post This, That, and the Other Thing I talked about how I was having trouble deciding what binding to use I had bought the orange binding that I ended up using and was wimping out and thinking about something else, any way long story short I got talked into using it and doing a biased binding (which I had never before done, and it will be a while until I do it again). I sort of suck at reading directions on how to do it and I ended up with a serious mess on my hands with dozens of short pieces all sewn together. But in the end it looks wonderful.
I quilted this quilt with my quilting of choice, an echo quilt. Because of the small 2 inch view able blocks and echo's on all sides I ended up doing a lot of quilting on this little quilt and I think it turned out fantastic.
Last of all I want to thank my son James for taking the pictures of the quilt. I think he gave it a neat look and feel with his pictures. While I am thanking people, thanks goes to Ella from Throw a wench in the works for the name Helix which I will name my pattern. Also to Karen from The Recipe Bunny for suggesting the name Pillar of Fire for the quilt. And for giving me the confidence to attempt a biased binding Elizabeth from Such as Sew and Sew and to all others who help and give me suggestions along the way.
