I love this quilt! I feel like it’s okay to gush a bit because I didn’t actually make it. This is variation on my modern wedding ring quilt that I designed and made for the NY Modern Quilt Guild challenge last fall.
I created the design for this version and my Mom sewed it up while she was here last month. She is a master at the low volume concept, and I think this quilt has so much interest. The finished quilt will be a bit of both of us. You see, I am going to quilt and bind it and produce the pattern so you can make one too.
I got so excited about this quilt, I decided to start quilting it as soon as possible, which turned out to be the weekend before we left for Hawaii. Unfortunately, I had taken my regular machine in for cleaning and tune-up while we were gone (I would miss it too much if I was home without it!).
I basted. I got out my Sashiko machine. I wasted a bunch of time and got very little done. My Sashiko machine is really acting up and I am so frustrated with it. Now I am unpicking the quilting I did do and debating about redoing it on my machine or taking it to be long-arm quilted. What a bummer.
But as hiccups go, this is pretty minor. I am still really excited about this quilt and even started the illustrations for the pattern during our (looooong) flight.
So at least I have that going for me.
