Almost 14 months ago I shipped off a quilt to the MQG to be part of their Modern Monthly series, and last week it was returned back to me. It had a bit more circuitous a route to get to me due to my recent move (it was shipped to my old address, forwarded to my in-laws who held it until we were established for a while before sending it on to its new home). You may remember me introducing you to the quilt under the name Rock Candy. It turns out that another quilt was already released that is named Rock Candy, so I have decided to rename my pattern Fractures.
It’s a good feeling to see an old friend for the first time in over a year. I sure hope that many of us will get to start experiencing that feeling with real friends (aka people and not just quilts) this year as the COVID-19 vaccine becomes more available… but I digress.
As I was opening the quilt, my eye noticed the scrappy / pieced hanging sleeve that I created from left over fabrics from piecing the quilt top, and it made me smile.
I am working to have an expanded Fractures pattern ready for release one week from today, on Friday, February 5th. What quilt sizes do you look for or wish you could find more often in a pattern?
