I mentioned this bad boy in my first post. Bam and I found the quilt kit at Quilting By The Bay in Panama City. I loved the curves and batik fabrics (they glow like stained glass)…little did I know though how hard it would be to piece. It was listed as an Intermediate to Hard design. The instructions mentioned pinning but didn’t act like it was necessary. It said you could just use a quill for tricky parts. I have a knack for choosing the most difficult projects when I start something new and this was no exception. Piecing the curvy triangles together…no problem. Bam would pin and I would sew. However, the two S curved halves of each block proved treacherous. No matter how we pinned and pressed seams, the center seam was wonky and wrong. It took a month to complete one square. Staring down the barrel of 19 mores squares…WHEW! Daunting! For a year, every Saturday, for hours, we patiently stitched it together. The end result was completely worth the trouble. And I’m a fearless quilter thanks to this challenge!
Bam and I love fun, funky quilts and this doozy set the bar high!
