Cue the trumpets: I finished my latest quilt in progress (the top, at least)! I have had so much fun with piecing this quilt. I set out to make something completely new and unique to showcase my beautiful fabrics and colors, and challenge myself with the piecing….I love how it turned out and it is not nearly as tricky to piece as it looks!
I am thinking about calling this “Summer Bloom”, and plan to write a pattern for it. I hope there will be some interest out there for a pattern. The fabrics are primarily from the Lavish collection by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics. Of course, I added a few other AGF prints from my stash, too. As always, I piece with Aurifil thread.
I kind of surprised myself with how quickly this top went together and I am glad because I didn’t want this to become a long lost project never finished. I have learned something about myself recently: If I start a quilt and make it all the way through without starting something new, I finish. If I allow myself to be interrupted (which is soooo tempting!), quilts in progress can sometimes get put off for a really long time.
It’s the “squirrel!” phenomenon, right? In this world of constantly releasing new and beautiful fabrics and my mind full of ideas, it is easy to start a whole bunch of things and not finish many. I feel so proud when I do one all the way through to finish!
I do plan to send this to one of my talented quilter friends for Pro-Quilting, so I need to get a backing ready and then get to chasing all those squirrels that have been going by the last couple of weeks.
