One of the best things about quilting so many quilts for quilt market is that I have a bunch of stuff to blog about!
Here we are at market, hamming it up for the camera! I worked with her last summer, quilting some quilts for her upcoming book, Modern Mix, but we had never met. So it was a lot of fun to hang out and get to know her even better. I think I have made a friend for life!
Ok……back to the quilt……
I found inspiration in her fabric, and recreated the design in the quilting. I also know she is a fan of geometric quilting so I added in the diamonds in the sashing……very royal…..don’t you think?
She always has intricately pieced backs for her quilts.
A close up shot of the piecing. You can’t tell from the pictures but the dark gray areas were only 1/4″. Wow!
A funny story about this quilt, which wasn’t so funny at the time, is that I loaded it sideways. She had told me how it was supposed to go on and I totally forgot and, of course, loaded it wrong. I didn’t realize until I had quilted the first block. AARRGGH!!! I was so mad at myself and had to remove….all….the…..quilting. I was super thankful that I didn’t get it all finished before I noticed. It was such a rookie mistake, but in my defense…..I was tired!
Thanks for looking, I will be posting more Quilt Market pictures soon!
