This is the quilt I've been so busy with the last few weeks, which is now hanging out in Houston with Laura Gunn, in the booth for her new line "Cosmos" with Michael Miller fabrics.
The pattern is in the writing/testing phase now, and I hope to have it ready soon! (I'll be emailing those who are interested).
This quilt is built with BIG (28") blocks that were inspired by this vintage scarf I saw on pinterest. I modified the design a bit, because I didn't want any negative space between the points. After graph-papering, and then EQ-ing up a bunch of different versions to get it just right, I made up a few of the blocks.
When Laura contacted me about making her a quilt for Market, I thought this design would showcase her large-scale prints beautifully.
And it does.
The quilt measures 90" square, and I was happy to find someone local who could rush the long-arm quilting for me. I think I was a little bit crazy trying to get this done during harvest time, but it worked out thankfully!
On the back, I pieced in some of the panel that comes with the Cosmos collection. I love that Laura's collections really look like art.
A big thank you to my parents for holding up the quilt so I could get pictures before I sent it away, and to E @ pinksuedeshoe for editing my parents out of the shot, to Angela for sharing, to Connie for the quick quilting, and to Laura for this beautiful fabric and great opportunity!
Also -- thank you to Amy for hosting this fun festival!
Harvest is almost over! (last field now!)
My plan is to work hard on finishing this pattern up as soon as I get my hubby back... so hopefully it will all be ready within a couple weeks! :) Check back if you love it! Which I really hope you do.
