My Santa Fe Quilt
This is another Janet Haas project; the quilt was from a class taught at the local high school. The pattern is pretty ingenious. You just make a rectangle in a rectangle, cut, rearrange and re-assemble it to make a southwest looking block. I quilted the same pattern for Sally (See Sally's Southwestern Quilt earlier this month in this blog).
The focus fabric is from Moda, it looks like a leather tooled purse. Then I chose accent colors pink, green and gold to coordinate with the focus fabric. I used a Moda Shadowplay tan fabric for the background because I wanted to see the quilting that I planned to do. There is an 8-inch border using the focus fabric. I used Signature Taupe Beige cotton thread on top and Bottom Line's Champange prewound bobbins from Superior.
I plan to show it off in class tonight.
My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
