I am so happy to share a finished quilt! I designed this patchwork pattern almost a year ago and my mom helped me start piecing it, but as is often the case, other projects kept getting put ahead of this one.
I finally finished up the top last spring and it sat while I had lofty ambitions of quilting it myself…then when I started working regularly again in June, I gave myself permission to have it long-arm quilted. This is one of those projects that I think looks so fantastic with the quilting added. My friend Jane did an all-over rounded rectangle bubbly type design that I love!
I am in process of producing a pattern for this quilt, look for it coming to my shop in the next month or so. It is a pretty quick one to piece and is pre-cut friendly. I am thinking about making up a baby version with my Fox Field fabrics. I am imagining fussy cutting pieces for the squares inside the windmills!
This version is a large throw size (I like how it’s long, great for a nap or on the sofa) and I used charm squares from the “juggling summer” collection by Zen Chic (for Moda Fabrics, Winter 2013), plus a lot of bits from my stash. I really like the jewel tones with the gray and white.
Funny side note: when I was at the park taking pictures, a woman out walking asked me if I was Amish. To her credit, she acted kind of embarrassed after she asked and I said “no”.
Have a great week!
