I always smile to myself whenever anyone discovers I make patchwork quilts and they immediately say,” Oh, I could never do that. I don’t have the patience.”
When I am immersed in a project and I have ideas bubbling around in my head, I am ANYTHING but patient.
Even while I am stitching my blocks together I am auditioning design ideas, in my mind, considering colour combinations and border variations. When I completed the December block of my Aurifil 2012 BOM I just couldn’t wait to see how Pat Sloan was going to put the blocks together.
So, I have finished my Aurifil 2012 blocks using my soft rainbow palette as I still had fabric left over. I began to measure and cut and piece….
Here is the finished top.
I like the result and I have ample space in my borders for quilting or more decorative embellishments with my Aurifil 12wt thread collection.
When it is quilted and bound I will share a picture later this year.
Want to see more finished quilts?
Sewzalot has finished her quilt and has shared some great images, and a pretty quilt layout
Many others have finished their quilts and shared them on the Aurifil Flickr page
Didn’t collect the patterns in 2012?
It is too late to enter the 2012 competition, but it is not too late to download the patterns to make your own version of the quilt.
The Cotton Mako’ 12 threads can be purchased from Always Quilting
Don’t get left behind this year, start collecting the 2013 Aurifil Designer of the Month blocks now.
We also have a BOM, “A Modern Welcome”, beginning here on our blog in the first week of March.
We hope you will join in the fun…..you just have to be patient.
