Just for fun - a real "forever" project   General Discussion

Started Aug-16 by JulietDeltaOscar (fixin2quilt); 486 views.

The "Sew Yeah Quilting" shop in Las Vegas, NV displayed this quilt in a recent video.  Everyone wanted to know if it was a kit and/or if there was a pattern -- or if they could purchase the quilt.  Kind of jokingly, they said they would sell it for $5,000 - and that was their break-even point.  It was a showpiece sample in their store for a long time - probably still is.  (I would dearly love to visit their store in Vegas; in photos and videos, it looks amazing!  They also have another quilt shop in Alaska.)  Their in-house sample maker did the paper piecing with batiks, carefully choosing all the shades, and of course, they had it custom-quilted (which they said had cost around $3,000).  The problem is, the pattern (published in 2003, I believe) seems to be out of print, and it's also pricey for a pattern - around $40-$43.  But it CAN be found on Amazon, etsy and perhaps other locations if you REALLY want one. 

So now, which one of you lightning-fast paper piecers wants to make one?  (Shelley or Dee could probably do it on a 3-day weekend!)

De Jnge patterns are challenging!  I haven’t done one, but friends have!  Gorgeous quilt though…..

Heh .. depends on if I'm gonna do English Paper Piecing or standard paper piecing (which I would do with the freezer paper method).   Boy, I haven't done freezer paper piecing in a month of Sundays!

It *is* a beautiful quilt!

I have this pattern and nearly all the fabrics required, and it’s been sitting in my cupboard for a few years.  I’m still working up the courage to make it.
