QuiltX

 

Screen Shot 2017-09-11 at 10.32.25 AMI haven’t been sharing a lot of progress with you lately because I’ve been working on a secret project for QuiltX.  QuiltX is a quilt show with a twist… the show features one designer (this year it’s Border Creek Station) unveiling a new pattern that the vendors all create something from.  It’s fascinating to see the different interpretations of the same pattern.

Last year, I ended up making two quilts (a throw and a baby quilt) that I just didn’t love.  I’m not sure why my creative mojo wasn’t in tune last year but this time ’round, I think I nailed it!  Oh, I wish I could share it with you… the suspense is killing me.

I have a wedding coming up later this year and I knew I wanted to make something simple and modern.  The pattern we were given is rather traditional but I knew that wouldn’t do for this young couple.  The design uses a traditional Churn Dash block with alternating setting blocks.  While I used both blocks, I didn’t exactly follow directions
(not surprised? I didn’t think so) I’ll be sharing my version with you here next week.

If you can’t wait that long and you’ll be in the St. Marys, ON area, come see me (and my quilt) at the Pyramid Rec. Centre.

Till next time…
Rita
