Oh I’m so excited! I actually finished a quilt top from my Sewtopia weekend (I’ve finished both projects from our classes but one at a time here…gotta spread the posts out!). The first finish I want to share with you (and disclaimer, by “finish” I mean I pieced the top) is the fabulous curved design, Molehills by Latifah Saafir. I love this pattern!
I’ve completely lost track of how many different designers ended up in this quilt but it was someone around 14 at last count. And I LOVE that I could do that. I don’t always get a chance these days to truly mix and match between companies and designers, but for a quilt for ME it’s a no brainer. I’m treating myself to a long arm quilter for this which is why I’m showing it not “finished” but I’ll be sure to inundate you all with more pictures when it is truly done. Because remember: Quilts take time. Sometimes we are under crazy schedules and it looks like they are produced over night…but that is not real life. I finished this top quickly because I had a whole day to work on cutting out all the pieces and piecing the hills. Then I was so excited about it that I brought it home and wanted to finish it! Excitement finished this, not necessity.
Oh and I do believe that Latifah officially has the pattern available for sale now!! So you can all go and get it. I PROMISE that is a doable quilt. I was in a room with 80 people of all different levels of sewing experience and everyone was able to sew this. These gentle curves are practically straight seams! So go check out Latifah’s site and get the pattern! Oh and I just saw that she is running a quilt along. Get the tips from the expert!
