Well, I recently finished my fourth and final New Age Block of the Month Customer quilt. Phew!!!! They all turned out wonderfully, and ended up being all so different from each other. I thought you might like to see them all together and see how different they are. Pattern is by Nancy Rink.
This latest one belongs to Janet and she designed and added borders to make it larger!! It turned out wonderful!!!
This next one belongs to Peggy.
Then this one belongs to Virginia.
The last one belongs to Eileen and she wanted to go with a Southwest look.
Here they are all together……
It just goes to show you how the same quilt pattern can turn out such different and beautiful quilts!!! It makes me think of people…..and how we are all the same….yet different….and that’s the beauty of the human race!!!!
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.
