With a plan to start traveling in Wabi-Sabi Overland at the end of April next year, I have started tapering off on secret sewing (aka sewing for magazine) projects. Precession is my last publication in Love, Patchwork & Quilting for a while, and I am pleased to get to share it with you today.
I actually designed Precession as a block study which is one quarter of a finished granny square block in the full quilt. The block looked like a top tipped over waiting to be spun, which lead to me naming it Precession. Precession is the motion of the rotation axis of a spinning body, which is often best seen as the wobbling in the pin of a spinning top.
Precession is made from Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton in Snow (background), Pink, Candy Pink, and Cerise. I quilted Precession with 50wt Aurifil 2021 (natural white). I started by quilting the background on my longarm and finished with some straight line quilting over the piecing on my domestic machine.
The Precession project also includes 2 pillow covers for 18 inch pillow forms.
Precession finishes at 54″ x 72″.
If you are interested in making your own version of Precession, you can find the pattern in Issue 68 of Love, Patchwork & Quilting, which released last Thursday (November 29th) and will be available in the US in another 4-6 weeks. The magazine is also available for purchase as a digital download.
Linking up with Amanda’s final Finish it Friday. Thank you Amanda, for everything over the years and best wishes for the next chapter!
