If you have been reading, you know I’m a fan of Craftsy and I have been taking a Improvisational Piecing, Modern Design Class by Jacquie Gering. I was first introduced to Jacquie by watching a video from the Modern Quilt Conference – can’t think of the name of the conference at the moment. Anyway, I love her simple but powerful designs. In my attempt to become a good quilter I decided to make every quilt in the class. This is quilt #4.
Of all the quilts in the class, this was my least favorite and I had a hard time starting. Let me tell you I was wrong. Once I started, I loved it. It was fast, easy and I thought each block was more beautiful than the next. It looked like I was a master at piecing but it was so easy a child could do it. If you want to take a great, easy modern quilt class hurry over to Craftsy and sign up as all quilting classes are on sale now.
Per the instructions, it only called for 4 blocks which although pretty in itself, I’m not big on just pretty things and wanted it to be useful too. Therefore I added 2 extra blocks and added some sashing and it is now big enough to be a lap quilt.
I find that I love intense quilting and therefore I quilted the heck out of this one. I only used two quilting designs, continuous lines and pebbles both I found easy to do. If you would inspect the quilt you would see that all the quilting isn’t perfect and there was a time or two I wondered if I should rip something out but in the end you don’t even see the imperfections and realize they become part of the beauty of the quilt.
I’m thrilled at my progression of quilting. Although not perfect, I love it. This quilt has already been gifted and is being loved. I hope it keeps my daughter’s legs warm for many years.
See you next time.
