city weekend plus quilt
I finished this quilt the other night which means I completed my goal to finish two quilts this Spring.
This quilt was a great experience that taught me a lot and showed me just how much more I need to learn.
With a design such as this one which I made up as I went along but, had lovely help figuring out how to make the blocks you can easily see how important each minute detail from exact cutting to exact sewing works out in the end.
I need to be more precise even when I think I am being diligent there is still room for improvement. That said I think it's really nice and I am proud that I made it.
I quilted along the sewing lines known as 'in the ditch' and used a lightweight batting. This makes a nice blanket and the bright coordinated color scheme of the City Weekend collection makes a fun happy summer quilt.
