The first round for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts is almost finished. I have been working on Renee’s quilt. She made this amazing center using a paper piecing pattern from Angela Walters.
This quilt when I received it made me nervous. I had no idea what I was going to do. The color palette was definitely not my usual palette and Renee’s center was so fantastic. What to do, which direction to take?? I had an idea with one of my previous designs, and decided to play around with it in Quilt Canvas (design tool).
I felt so much better once I worked out this plan, even though the color palette was still a little scary. I went to work and spent a whole day (while on vacation) starting to piece together my border (6″ across). 5 or so hours later (I need to find a quicker way to do those 1.5″ geese) I am so happy with this quilt addition so far.
I am hoping to finish the border this weekend, along with my do.good.stitches blocks. I am just so happy to be feeling well again and sewing. FYI…don’t forget if you sew with browns (this is Kona Bison) that there is a hashtag #sewingwithbrowns. Yes, Brown can be in a modern quilt!!
