Inspired by: Craftsy Modern Quilting class
Fabrics: The grey was a Christmas gift. The petals were from my scrap drawers. The back was an amazing find at MCC.
Thoughts: This is a quilt that's been on my list for at least 6 months.
It's one of seven projects in a modern quilt class I took on Craftsy. Sort of. I mean, the style (melon or orange peel) was used in the Craftsy class, but I had no wish to individually appliqué 36 petals on to individual squares then piece them all together and blah blah blah.
Remember the hexis I did? Click here to refresh your rememory. It was the first time I sandwiched a top and then added the details after. I knew I'd need to do it again,
Note to self: Hand positioning is critical if you don't want jogs like the oopsie above.
This might just be top five for me. I really like it. I'm a little annoyed by the shrink. Either I needed to wash the grey a second time or my 20p / 80c batting shrunk a bit.
There it is. I have two more from this Craftsy class to quilt - one is by hand and it's on a frame - it will be a while. The other is ready to go whenever I get the urge. When it's done I'm calling this a complete (because the hand quilted one will take forever) and starting a new course.
