It’s day 5 on the tour of projects through my book. The last day! The last three of sixteen projects I spent the last two years working on. It’s been wonderful to share the projects with all of you this week and get
your feedback on the projects. Each comment has really been so dear to me. I love hearing what projects get you guys excited about finally tackling curves (which I promise you can do!). And which projects are already inspiring you to try versions of your own. And I most definitely just really appreciate the support. It’s a strange world to write a book in isolation with little feedback and then sit and wait for the final reveal…but you have all helped make that process so much easier. So thank you!
I’m sharing the final 3 projects today from the book. We are wrapping the week up with a host of giveaways and I hope you all enjoy them and share about them. If you missed the previous days posts, no worries. I have links provided near the end of this post. And I’m keeping all of the giveaways open until next week, so everyone can have a chance to look over all of the quilts.
The first project I want to share today is baby quilt, Medallion.
This might be my favorite styled photo from the book. I pulled from my precious stash of Katie Jump Rope fabric to create this quilt that is perfect for either a boy or a girl. And I’m pretty proud of the quilting I did…it was a stretch for me but I tackled it with some success. In fact, every quilt in the book is quilted in a different way to show you some of the many options that there are for quilting styles. Oh and this baby quilt was quickly cut with the help of the Accuquilt Go large die and cutter. You can make this fairly quickly and easily make it larger by continuing to add more rows.
I adore this table runner and the MOVEMENT created by interlocking the curves together. In another lifetime, I would create a large quilt that used this motif. But in the interest of full disclosure, I will admit that this project is small for a reason. Maybe because it was one of the last projects I was making in a mad dash to the finish…but technically speaking, this is actually one of the hardest designs. I don’t say that to scare anyone from making it, but just to point out that this project is all about matching seams on all corners of each block. So I’d suggest you practice your technique with one of the other projects before taking this one on. But by all means, do try it…because it is immensely satisfying to create a piece this deceptively intricate. And I will probably make another one, because when I finished it, I loved it so much that I was already thinking of other colors and a longer length for a wall hanging. It’s an addictive pattern.
