A good friend of mine was looking at one of my quilts and commented, "I love your attention to detail." which I'm pretty sure was a very nice way of saying "you are completely compulsive". It's true, I am one of those obsessively organzied control freaks. For me quilting is all about matched points and precision piecing. This quilt has none of that! There are a few tucks where I forced the Xs together, the quilting can best be described as "organic", and it's not quite square because I accidentally trimed one corner a 1/4" short in my excitement to finish it up. And I'm OK with that.
Finished quilt is 55" x 64".
Pattern is Chain Reaction by Lee, the wonderful hostess of W.i.P Wednesday at freshly pieced published in the March/April 2012 issue of Quiltmaker magazine.
Fabrics: Bella bleached white, Kate Spain's Verna jellyroll, scraps from stash including Hope Valley, Carmen, Nicey Jane, Sweetwater Pure, California Girl, Joel Dewberry... The back is from Kate Spain Good Fortune and Amy Butler Love. Binding is more Verna. My favorite, Dream Orient batting.
