Representing the shavings that curl off metal as it's machined on a lathe, this quilt would make a dramatic and colourful statement in any room.
It was originally made as a 90th birthday gift for my father as a tribute to him for the many years he spent machining metal, particularly truck axles. It also reminds me of the piles of shavings my mother heaped under some of the hydrangeas to turn them a beautiful blue.
It's written as a quilt-as-you-go project so it will be fairly quick and easy to finish and won't be languishing in your unfinished quilts cupboard. The only requirements to get it finished are that you can sew a straight line and follow the pattern charts and instructions. If you prefer it can also be made as a quilt top and sandwiched with batting and backing later.
The finished quilt measures
156cm x 213cm (61in x 84in) which is single bed size.
