If you're wondering if I appliqued the ovals, the answer is no. I did use lots of pins though. Curves are tough! It also helps to have help from your friends and it sure speeds up the process. (thanks guys!)
As I'm writing this, something is bothering me about the quilt. And now I see it? One row is pieced incorrectly. How could I have missed it before? Do you see it? Look at the next to the last row.
Well, I'm going to share it anyway. I'll decide later if I'm going to fix it. Maybe I should change the name to "One of Those Days".
I'll share again when it's quilted but it might be a while. Hopefully within the year! Hopefully a happy day.
Thank you Fat Quarterly for sponsoring such a fun event!
If you're not familiar with Fat Quarterly, it's an e-zine (electronic magazine) for modern sewists, by modern sewists.
Fat Quarterly was started by members of the online modern quilting community to share project ideas and inspiration with other members of the community. You may purchase both current and previous issues here.
As I read the news last night, I realized that I don't have near enough options for purchasing the collection so . . .
. . . I've added Fat Quarter and Fat Eighth bundles to the shop.
The bundles include all 21 prints in the line . . .
. . . including the hard to find the Blue and Grey Maps.
We also have a few more Local Quilt Kits available.
The kits come with the pattern or without for those who previously purchased it.
