Didn’t Get the Memo – all finished up!


Finally finished up this little quilt! I love it. The quilting looks like it was randomly done, but it wasn’t. Each line follows along the edge of a different triangle… This was one of those quilting situations where you really aren’t sure you’re doing the right thing as it’s happening, but the end result is fantastic. I’m really happy with the overall effect!

Here’s the back:


I took a quick video of it for Instagram and thought I’d post it here too!

Tomorrow I’m headed up to Sisters, Oregon a week to teach and speak! I’m so looking forward to it. I should be a wonderful time. I’ll post all of the mini quilts I made for class samples soon!

    That is stunning- I always love your quilts, this is a bit of a departure from your usual long intersecting strips and beautiful too! Love the way you’ve laid some triangles over and put a surprise red one. The quilting totally works!

    The quilting is WONDERFUL, yes! As I began to read this post, I first took in the first photo and that’s what I thought- what great quilting! and then I began to read and I am glad that you too are really pleased with the outcome. Great work!
