My son, Adam, is engaged! The wedding is in May of 2015, and I offered to make a quilt for the newlyweds. I am allowing Adam to pick out the pattern only, not the fabrics (wisdom I received from a great quilter friend). “Twists and Turns” is the pattern he chose from Quilty’s January/February 2014 magazine.
It’s a Beginner Level 3 rating, so I made a practice block from left over fabrics. I consider myself a Beginner Level 2 quilter. It turned out pretty cool. I learned a LOT – like, no directions on which way to press, and doing my first partial seam square. I also learned that it pretty much “matched points” without my help, which is a huge blessing. Wonder if that will continue to be true?
So – off to find enough fabric to do a King size quilt in purples and teal with – maybe – a light grey background. Kinda tricky since I have to up-size the quilt, but I love buying too much fabric!
