WMQG Challenge- REVEAL

RKChallengeQuilt

And its finally finally finally time for me to show you the Robert Kaufman Fabrics- charm challenge for our WMQG!

My quilt is 100% inspired by Don’t Look Now and the Joseph’s Coat quilt-along.  As it turns out, I’m not as meticulous.  I don’t hand applique.  I worked with a much smaller “wedge” shape.  BUT all in all (and from really far away) the quilt turned out ok.  My favorite part is the shimmer Krenik thread I used in the quilting.

I McTavished the areas that were not part of those “wagon wheel” shapes.  Then I used the raw-edge applique stitches to serve as my quilting stitches- kinda like a ticker tape quilt.  As it turns out, though, using that free-motion foot to try to EXACTLY edge-stitch these small curves was very tricky.  Its a mess.  BUT… I do like it in a it-has-character kinda way.  =)

    Hey Jen, what are the overall dimensions of the quilt??? I’m trying to give the applique some dimensional perspective in my brain!

  2. Jen Eskridge says:

    The quilt is 26″ square.

    Would you mind if I recreated something like this for a swap that I am in? I will definitely post that it was inspired by your lovely quilt above – thinking of doing a blue/pink fad in/out similar to what you’ve done above in the rainbow colors.
