Happy Monday! I have another finished quilt from 2015 to share today. This was made using the Kate's Big Day quilt pattern by Bonnie Olaveson (Cotton Way patterns). I first blogged about this quilt here - a year and a half ago- yikes!
I have to say that before this quilt I was pretty intimidated by sewing curves. And I'm not really sure why. Now that I think about it, back in high school I sewed plenty of curves. I made some of my own clothes and dresses and every time I sewed a sleeve I was sewing a curve. Why didn't that occur to me when I sat down to start this big project? Anyway, I quickly learned that curves are nothing to be afraid of.
Now I'm not saying that all of my piecing was perfect. Not by a long shot. But I got better as I went, and learned some tricks along the way. And I did it!
The quilting was done by Kaylene Parry (@quilterlove66 on instagram) - and I absolutely love it! Towards the end of last year I was overwhelmed by the amount of work I had so I decided to have Kaylene quilt two quilts for me and I'm so glad I did. I think this one would still be waiting in the "to-be-quilted" pile otherwise!
