I’m so happy to be posting this. I love this quilt. I made it as a gift for my wonderful sister- and brother-in-law, started back last fall. I love how traditional it is, and that within the traditional pattern what stands out is the way the geometry works together. Un-fussy, if a little fiddly.
I owe the pattern to Anita and her wonderful instructions as part of the Carpenter’s Wheel QAL. I didn’t keep up with the quilt-a-long, but I knew I wouldn’t when I started. I wanted to focus more on my intentions than deadlines, and that felt good. I wanted to make sure I got all the love in the stitches. The process has shown up in little bits here and on instagram and flickr.
The pattern is the most technical I’ve attempted, with many, many Y seams. I was good and I marked them (nearly all of them) like Anita said to do. I think it made all the difference.
