This quilt came quite quickly! I started the quilt in February 2015 and was able to bring it to the long-arm appointment in March. My husband chose the backing, Raspberry Minky! I was all about a grey backing, but he was a fan of the minky!
I chose a mod-century pattern for the blocks. The name of the pattern is Mid-Century pattern by Urban Elementz.
There was a slight glitch with my long arm quilting. I got a bit too cocky and moved a little fast. Here is a moment on the blog that isn’t part of the highlight reel that sheds light on the truth! The minky, fluffy batting, and the quilt top were a bit slippery. My batting has a fold in it. I noticed it after 2 rows. I was too lazy to take out the 2 rows. It would have only been 2 half rows, but I was tired. So, the quilt is a bit wonky.
Lesson learned! In hindsight, I should have taken out the 2 rows! Julie was still quilting, and I had plenty of time! What that did was throw the alignment off of the quilting pattern. So I spent all this time piecing a quilt and then just called it in when it came to the quilting. UGH!
My worrying and regret was for naught! The good news is that when I took pictures, you can’t really tell! You have to look for the error! What a relief!!
