Remember this quilt?
I had a great time making it, so much fun that I agreed to make it again. This time it's going to be for a friend's daughter who will be starting university in the fall; she wants her daughter to have a cuddly quilt to keep her warm in her new home in Toronto. I'm going to be making it in solids, this time. I'm using the Kauffman Kona Solids bundle in Hot Spice.
Want to quilt along with me? The quilt is made from the pattern Curlicue by Rebecca Johnson of Chasing Cottons. I know that many recent giveaways have featured this quilt, and I think it was a signing bonus with Fat Quarterly a few months ago. I figure there may be a few folks out there who have bought or won the pattern, but haven't worked up the courage to venture into Curved Seams Land. If that's you, maybe you want to come along with me as I make this quilt for the second time. It's really much, much easier than it looks.
Here are some things you might want to know before you make up your mind to quilt along:
You would have to buy the pattern from Rebecca at her website - it is a downloadable .pdf so no waiting for the mailman!
The pattern requires 20 fat quarters (plus fabric for the backing and binding).
The quilt finishes at 48" x 55", but you could add a border, if you wanted it to be larger, I suppose.
Although I have a special presser foot for curves, you really don't need one.
I plan to start this quiltalong, if there is any interest, in two or three weeks, once Passover is behind us.
What do you think? Any takers?
