Turkey Tracks: November 22, 2018
On The Longarm Today
I fell in love with Victoria Finlay Wolfe’s herringbone quilt pattern. She takes the notion of a braid quilt and gives it a whole new twist and then moves on again to take the pattern into all sorts of formations, including curves. This pattern can be found in her book MODERN QUILT MAGIC.
I’ve been working on this quilt for some time—I found I need to make what I started longer to fit the wider size after I added additional strips. The connection piecing is tedious, but once you get into the groove of how to “see” what goes with what, you can zip along. Figuring length and width also was a learning curve for me.
But, boy do I like this quilt—it’s all low-volume Cotton+Steel. (If you didn’t know it, C+S has disembarked from its current home. The five designers have stayed together, have gone to Moda, and are now Ruby Star Society. Their first collection for Moda will come at the spring market.)
