I don’t just mean her fabric choices either although I find this quilt quite striking. I don’t always trim her quilts for her especially if I’m running short on time but although I was able to control some of the flaring of the quilt on the longarm, I felt it would benefit from being not just trimmed but squared and I’m not sure she knows how to do that.
I use my rulers to get the corners 90 degrees but I’ve got it lined up on the mat here … There’s too much glare off the ruler. It probably doesn’t matter so much for sofa quilts or bed quilts that don’t hang on the wall but I love having my quilt edges come together exactly when I’m folding up a quilt. Just one of my little quirks in an otherwise less than perfect quilter.
I said earlier I used the pantograph Halcyon and a dark green thread and I was pleased with both choices and I think my Aunt will be too. The curvy quilting goes well with the straight lines of the half log cabin blocks.
