My quilt New York High Line was released as a pattern this week, via the Modern Quilt Guild resource web page and newsletter. It is free to members.
This quilt was designed as part of quilt design a day. It was based on an image I had taken of a building from the New York High Line. This image was our used also as our QuiltCon Showcase earlier this year.
This is a great quilt if you want to play with accuracy, as matching the various lines is important to the overall composition.
I feel very rewarded now that the quilt is done, though the 1/2″ straight line quilting was a difficult task. A mix of lots of procrastination, burying all those threads (which was due to thread matching, lead to a process taking 5 months.
I did extend the quilting lines through the orange stripe, edge to edge.
