I've been looking forward to quilting this quilt since I first decided to make it, over a year ago.
The pattern is Lug Nuts, from Highway 10 Designs I really enjoy making Lori and Kathy's patterns. The only change I made to this one was I changed the pressing instructions so the seams would lock. It pieced up nice and easy.
I had had my eye on the Little Black Dress fabrics for a while, and that was what Kathy and Lori had used for their cover quilt, so I decided to use Little Black Dress fabrics too. The quilt uses 9 fabrics.
Here's the flimsy when I finished it in October 2014 (try not to let the lovely carpet in the boardroom at the hotel we use for retreat boggle your brain)
I had so much fun quilting this quilt, each of the 25 blocks in the quilt (23 whole blocks and 2 blocks that are in 1/2 at the top and bottom) is unique, so I applied the same idea to the quilting, and each block is quilted uniquely--several of the elements are repeated, but no two blocks were the same.
Now, the hardest part I think, and what's been delaying the blog post, is deciding which photos to share, I love them all so much....
This block was handguided triangles, but looks like ruler rays.
