Back in March, I showed a quilt I had designed in EQ7 named Moon Phase, for the Design It! Red and White Quilt Challenge. I had every intention of making Moon Phase for Phase 3: Make It. I just couldn't motivate myself to get started.
|Even though I still like what I designed, my heart just wasn't in it.|
I think maybe it's a little too "modern" for my tastes.
Last week, I realized that the "Make It" deadline was coming up in 12 days.
It's now or never, as they say.
Moon Phase is was out of the question, but there was a block I had come across recently that I thought would be fun:
|I made twenty blocks last Friday night....|
|and played with them on Saturday.|
Here the blocks are set all the same direction.
|I think I like this a little better....|
|yeeesss--this is the one!|
|Well, now you know what I did the rest of the week!|
I finished the quilting Wednesday and attached the binding on Thursday.
|Even though I love the traditional look of the quilting,|
I will never do crosshatching on the long arm again--too tedious!!
|Quilted with Aurifil 50 Wt. #2310|
Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon All Cotton batting
I can't wait to wash her up and see her all crinkled up and cozy!
