Sometimes you make a quilt and it just tells you how it wants to be quilted.  When I made this quilt it went right from the sewing machine to the frame.  No ruminating needed.  


Not so much with the quilt I am working on now.  A few weeks ago I purchased the most wonderful bundle of Alison Glass Handcrafted 2.  

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  One of my goals for 2015 was to make a quilt with curves.  Up until now I have been shying away, but I had an idea for a block I wanted to try.  

It is an adaptation of a Shoo Fly block using quarter circles in place of the half square triangles.  After some experimenting and improvisation with the layout I ended up with this quilt top.


I am pretty happy with how it turned out and I know quilting will really bring this thing to life.  Except I am unsure how I want to quilt it.  I have changed my mind at least a dozen times.  After 2 weeks of indecision I decided today:  "That's it!"  It is going on the frame tomorrow and I will figure it out as I go.   Better done than sitting in a drawer.  Stayed tuned for my progress.  

Thanks for reading. 


PS.  I am going to attempt to link up to Let's Bee Social over at Sew Fresh Quilts.  I have been follow her blog for the last year and I love the quilting community vibe.
