This quilt started in December last year. The Quilt top was done as part of a pair, where I wanted to test how Indian fabric squares behaved as against designer charm square packs from the United States. Post that, the two quilt tops languished in my the WIP file for 6 mnths until I brought them out and decided to complete the one with the Designer Charm pack.
When I basted the quilt, I had no idea how to quilt it, but soon the white sashing started to pop out and I was convinced that I would fill it with the wishbone, which Angela Walters had taught in her Free Motion Quilting Challenge series. But then, I was left with the squares and somehow felt that needed something angular to bring out the beauty and uniformity of the wishbone.Yes Uniformity, never thought I would be able to use that word for my own FMQ but practice is the only secret ingredient to good FMQ.
This is a gift for my cousin’s one year old son Piyush; sending it for his birthday.
