Who can tell when your all happy under it? Now that the drywall is finished up in the studio, paint and flooring has been purchased. Hoping things will be rolling by the end of May. There are two spots still in Amebas. As with any quilt there are things I love and things I learned and Fresh Cut is no exception. I really need to write a post on mixing up binding. You can find the pattern here.
Just out of marketing curiosity, did anyone have exposure to this quilt when it came out? There are two spots in my Improvisational Curved Shapes Workshop beginners welcome on April 23rd from 6pm-9pm at the Quilting Loft call to sign up.

At one of my lectures this week I got a bunch of questions from an attendee about my Night Owl Quilt.
The design is a pattern called Supernova that is published in our book Quilting Modern. I think quilters are drawn to reproducing this quilt pattern due to its simplicity of technique and construction. I come across its remake online more than any other quilt in the book. The softness quality is exactly balanced for me on this quilt. Soft colors, soft Essex, wool batting, Osnaburgh on the back, and just enough density of an organic quilting pattern all add up to perfect.
The only thing I wish I would have added are the spin-offs into the background. I love these colors. Something about the small scale tone on tone and the color of this fabric attracts me to hoarding it. There it is, Night Owl Quilt has landed on my Quilt page! Share this: Facebook Pinterest.
Thanks Bell and Allison for holding my quilt and attending my workshop;. All just seemed silly to tuck away in a box for years. But finished it had issues, the crappy sewing machine with no pressure foot tension type of issues.

The quilting was tucked and awful. After over thinking how I should quilt it on my home machine for a couple years I came back to my senses and made a long arm date with Sandie. This type of simple quilt is really perfectly suited for an all over quilting pattern.
Before requilting I had to enlarge the back. This made it extra fun to apply the binding to one side. Roan chose the red Kai dot, which might be one I need to replace in the stash. I was able to sit right in front on the ferry on my way from Victoria and sew it down. I really enjoyed pulling this one from the dryer. It also made me appreciate where my art has gone and where it started.
I still embrace that diagonal line that a half square triangle has. So there it is, blueberry stains already there and all. One spot left in Stripped Improv Workshop Tuesday night. This will be our last one until Island Quilter is in their new space. Jefe worked on the Coho ferry between Port Angeles and Victoria for many years and Roan and I would occasionally go see him on board.
When we docked in Victoria this image of Roan pretending he was waving to all the fine people of Victoria popped into my head. This is getting framed and going in the studio. So fun to hang out away from home and feel so happy and comfortable with good friends.

Just as with any quilting I learned some things. This likely would have stabilized it a bit more. On the back I showcased an Alexander Henry print that I love. The binding I made twice. I wanted to reproduce the feel of the original quilt and selected the light blue with out auditioning it. Poor choice. This quilt needed the drama of the dark purple. Thanks Rachel of Wooden Spoon for the photo;. I finished it up just in time for Anja and Paul of Island Quilter to take it with them to Quiltcon for their booth. This year was Quiltnon for me, but three of my quilts made it;.
It so turns out that I managed with some help to have a finished quilt to show you along with my obligatory palm tree photo. Both very traditional quilts in block style, but I had fun mixing up the fabrics, picking the color way and giving them some random placement. It all breaths some fresh air into those simple half-square triangle blocks that you can do so much with. The binding and the star points in the Alexander Henry Heath add some texture without too much print distraction. I never alone would have thought to go with the maze she picked and we both were so happy with how it turned out.
