I take getting a commission for a custom quilt pretty seriously. When Amy asked me to make her a certain quilt, I knew I could do it, but there was no pattern or tutorial for a similar quilt, that I could find. I decided that my best course of action would be to make a "trial" quilt top, writing a tutorial as I went. The quilt Amy wants is made of solids, and very modern. I wanted to keep the trial quilt top modern, but I wanted to use fabric from my stash. These are the fabrics I used.
The quilt top turned out perfect, to me, and it was pretty easy to put together. It's just very time consuming putting together a queen size and wrangling all that fabric. I told Bob we may need a larger house, if I keep this up! (Just kidding, and he knows it.)
Here's a shot, outside on the grass, and below on my bed.
I'm thinking, this first edition of the quilt, may need to stay at Casa Prytz!
May your bobbins always be full,
