This quilt was finished just before we moved out of Massachusetts, about a month ago, so it feels like old news now but I wanted to take this chance to blog its completion.
It's my New Wave quilt composed of mostly Amy Butler's Lark line, a little AB Cameo, and some Joel Dewberry with lots of stash basics framing the larger pieces. Lark was a line that I thought I didn't like until I saw it in person at Quilt Market in 2011. I bought lots of it on sale at fabric.com, back when their prices were awesome..... sniff, sniff.....
The New Wave pattern is a great choice for using large scale prints that you don't want to cut into tiny pieces.
I brought it to Laurena's in Burlington and used the Statler Stitcher to do a pattern called "Dew Drops." It's hard to see the detail of the design in the loud and busy fabrics.
It measures about 90 x 98.
I bought the Lark Kasbah backing on Hancocks of Paducah for about $5 a yard- it's such a dramatic, pretty print. I bound the quilt in Ann Kelle's Remix stripe.
My mom emailed me this picture of the Statler quilting my Tula Pink sampler quilt. I gave my mom the money to have it quilted at Laurena's since I already knew which Statler pattern I wanted to use on it and I have yet to find a decent longarming option here in Colorado. I can't wait till she visits again and brings it to me, although I may just have her mail it to me if I feel too impatient. I miss Laurena and her quilting studio so badly- I knew I had a good thing going there!!!
Thanks for reading!
