Honu III

Here's a first peek at Honu III!

He's done, except for the sleeve, which I am going to stitch on tonight.

I finished this one with a facing instead of a binding, which I prefer for this quilt, because it gives it a more "open" look since it's not confined by a traditional binding. You can't see the detail in this shot, but I will take better (and more color-true) photos this weekend with my new photography set up.

Thanks to one of my blogging friends who referred to Kathy Loomis' article in the September 2007 issue of AQS magazine - who was it?? It's Kathy's instructions I followed for the facing - great job!

This is stunning. Facing instead of binding is the way to go on this one I think. Great choice. Love your asymmetrical border.

What a surprise to see all the eye candy. Honu #3 is just a beautiful as his other siblings. Keep up the wonderful work, can't wait to see what you do in Tahoe.

This looks great - like a closeup look. Your weaving project looks intriguing as well.

This one is my very favorite.
I loved it the minute I saw it a year ago.
You are so talented, Dianna.
Thank you for sharing your 'gift.'
