A Quilty Visit

Megan Bruns dropped in for a fun visit yesterday.  She brought two projects to share with me.

Megan loves Anna Maria Horner fabrics and both of her projects involve those.  She is using her collection to make this version of Katja Marek’s “Quilt-lets” quilt.  You can search on the right sidebar for my version, finished a few years back.  But I love what Megan is making here.  The centers are Essex Linen and the sides/backs are Anna Maria Horner.  Each block stands alone.  Each block will get some kind of “quilting” before assembly, which is done by using a ladder stitch to sew the individual blocks together.  She is making a king size quilt.

We discussed several ideas for quilting. What kind of thread, what kind of intensity, what kind of pattern.  I am looking forward to seeing what she will do.  The linen is…sturdy…so dealing with quilting knots will be an issue.

 

 

More on her second, very interesting project, as that one develops more.
