A local quilt shop (Peggy’s Sewing Center) did a Block of the Month this year. The BOM is called A New Age by Nancy Rink Designs and Marcus Fabrics. It uses Aged Muslin and there were different colorways you could choose. I did not participate in this BOM, as I have come to realize that that is just too much pressure…..LOL!!!
I have to say that I have four spaces reserved by people wanting me to quilt their BOM quilt. This is a challenge for me, as I don’t want the quilts to look similar with the quilting, so it will be fun to reveal them all as I get them quilted….or I may wait until I quilt the last one and post all the pictures together!!
Anyway….this one belongs to Peggy. I definitely had a lot of fun with this!!!
I had a hard time figuring out the color thread to use with this, but ended up with a very pale gray, and it absolutely looks great on this!!!
I really do love how this turned out, and as I said, it will be a challenge to change up the quilting. The next one has a couple of extra borders and we are going to try to keep it in a “southwest flair” type of quilting. I actually had to put something else on the frame in between to sort of clear my mind before starting with the next one. Fortunately, the next two aren’t until October and November!!
I used two battings in this…..Quilters Dream Cotton on the bottom and Quilters Dream Wool on top. I used Superior Threads So Fine #50 thread. And of course, this was quilted on my Handi Quilter Avante. All of this is hand guided free motion and ruler work.
