Hi! My name is Susan Gill and this is my version of a stairway quilt. I made it for very good friends who have had a blank wall above their staircase for 28 years because they couldn’t find a wall hanging they could both agree on.
I made this quilt using the 6-inch Accuquilt Crazy Quilt Block. I used twenty different fabrics including several batiks and various other cottons. I quilted it by outlining each piece in each block with coordinating thread.
The inspiration came from a similar hanging I saw on Facebook, that was created by quilter Leah Fisher, who has since became a good friend (even though we live about 1200 miles apart). We’ve never met in person, but communicate almost daily, sharing our lives and love of creating, sewing, and quilting
This quilt was definitely a labor of love for my friends of 40+ years. It was also my most ambitious project yet.
