When we moved to our new house (yes, this was last year, like 2013!) I wanted to make a quilt for our living room. And I wanted a modern design. So a pin caught my eye on Pinterest, and I decided to give it a try.
The piecing went great, I had the top pieced in no time (yes, last year!) and I had to baste it and quilt it. I wanted a sturdy fabric for the back as it was going to be a wall quilt, and I chose a really bad one, a tweed denim-like. Well, to keep it short, it was impossible to quilt! Sliding that backing fabric through the sewing machine was a nightmare! I promised myself I will only use cotton quilting fabrics, unless it is a very small project. I hope this week my husband will find the time to hang it on the wall, and I can say that after all the trouble, I really like it.
Machine pieced, quilted and binded by me.
