This is my 2nd attempt at this quilt from Ashley's tutorial. My first was for my niece, Kaitlin, for her 14th birthday and it was a huge hit! This one is for my niece, Christine, for her high-school graduation present. Kaitlin lives in Virginia and Christine in Kansas ... so I figured it would be OK to make them the same quilt pattern ... this is such a fun quilt and I believe perfect for a teenage girl (particularly two who live far away and you don't know their favorite colors and all).
The weather didn't cooperate this weekend for the photo shoot, but here's some I snuck in between rain showers:
I busted the scrap bin wide open with this effort.
I am finding that I really like the result of a tighter meandering quilt ... since I don't pre-wash, the tighter quilting coupled with a hot wash and dry really creates the krinkly feel that I like so much and just can't seem to achieve with the broader spaced quilting. Maybe someday when I have a machine with a walking foot my tune may change ;-).
What's a photo shoot at the cabin without a little view thrown in? That's Hood Canal, the only Fjord in the lower 48 states.
