A couple of years ago I made a queen size version of Suzy Quilts Modern Fans. You can see that beauty here and here. I loved making that quilt. Sewing the curves was so relaxing and rewarding. I had some fabric and partially sewn components remaining and tucked them away for another quilt. We are fortunate to know people having babies and "needing" a KayakQuilting quilt.
I try to learn something new with each project and this one has two experiments. All my quilts to date have been finished with cotton batting. For this I tried wool and I get it! I understand why people love the texture and drape of wool. It washed up beautifully with just a little shrinkage.
This quilt is also the first time I have added a significant amount of hand quilting. Researching tutorials and videos I kept playing with the right position to hold the needle and quilt. By the end I had found a position that was comfortable for me and I'm sure I'll be doing more hand quilting.
