I can say with absolute certainty that I have never sewn as much in so little time as I have so far this year. Since I had nine new designs accepted for 2022 fabric catalogs late last fall, I've been scrambling to write the patterns, test them, and make cover quilts for all of them. I think I'm finally in the home stretch!
Knotted is one of the ones I've been working on.
Wasn't that a pretty stack of pieces? Next up was a little bit of chain piecing...
FYI, the units from the trimming photo are not the ones in the chain piecing photo. I'm just clarifying that for those of you who might spend some time trying to figure out how flying geese came out of those chain pieced units. :)
All the units tuned into blocks. It looks more complex than it actually is. Chain piecing and stitch-and-flip makes these quick and easy, and pressing directions helps the seams nest for nice seam matching.
Adding a little sashing and borders finished up this top. I'm calling it Knotted, because I think the small pink squares look like knots on a string lattice.
I don't have a photo of the quilted and bound quilt yet, because it's not bound yet. It's quilted, thanks to wonderful longarmer Liz Meimann, but it's still waiting on me for the binding. I had a couple of other patterns and quilt tops to work on first, but now the decks are cleared and I can work on binding.
How are your quilty projects coming along?
Very pretty quilt and congrats on all the patterns being accepted!ReplyDelete
Really cool design. With the sashing like that it looks like it's on point, not square. Another one with pretty reds!ReplyDelete
Cannot wait for this pattern - love the fact that you will be including pressing for pieces to nest as pressing seams open never works for me! Love, love, love your final colors!ReplyDelete
It just amazes me to see your production level this year. Pretty Impressive. This is a clever design. And yes, it is a pretty selection of fabrics.ReplyDelete
