I have had this quilt top sitting in my studio unfinished for over 4 years now. My thoughts at the time were that I was going to custom quilt it, however, my life and schedule have not allowed the time needed to do so. I am a little sad about that, but I think having the quilt finished and being able to gift it finally, is a better option.
I used V and Co's beautiful fabric for the piecing with Moda's Bella Solid white for the background fabric. The pattern is Metro Rings, available here, by Sew Kind of Wonderful.
I quilted this with a computerized edge to edge pattern on my A1 longarm. I now have 2 quilting machines, one for my custom work and one for edge to edge quilting. You can read all about that, and get in line for quilting services here.
I used Axel by Keryn Emmerson edge to edge quilting pattern. However, my designs available for quilting have been updated as of yesterday, please take a look at those here.
What I like most about this quilt is the color placement. I wanted to create my own take on the design by placing the colors in a very specific way. The end result is absolutely beautiful.
Clint and the kids gave me a beautiful spot in our yard for a garden swing. I like to read here and enjoy a little bit of serenity every now and again. I think the contrast of the quilt colors and the tans of the swing and patio make for a perfect backdrop to show the quilt. Even then, the colors in the picture do not give this quilt any justice at all.
So, sew beautiful!! Thanks for reading! I have a lot of good things coming up, including an all new design that I think you will love. I haven't even shared a sneak peek of it, so it's going to be a surprise for everyone. I can't wait to release the pattern. Also, I have a custom quilt on the frames that has some pretty amazing never done before quilting. Be sure to follow me here and on social media to know when updates are available. Have a wonderful week!
