It's a secret reveal day!!! Yippee, I have such a hard time keeping these secrets so I just love when I finally share. So, without further ado, here is Square Dance!! I designed this quilt probably 2 years ago and it was just sitting in my EQ program waiting. And then in Spring the fabrics,magazine, and design all fell together and Square Dance went from an EQ sketch to a finished quilt!!
The pattern for Square Dance can be found in the Fall 2013 issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited. This was my first time publishing with MQU so that was a new fun experience. It always makes me smile to see how different the publishing process is from one company is to another. You really learn a lot :)
It's no secret that I like bold geometric designs. I love how they can often give an almost 3-D effect. Square Dance allowed me to really showcase some fun prints and since this quilt was all about Fall, I went with Smore's Love by Julie and Eric Comsotck from Moda Fabrics.
I quilted Square Dance with an all over Wood Grain effect that I learned from Angela Walters Craftsy Class. I think this stitch really added to that Fall feel. And, it had the added bonus of being incredibly fun to stitch!!! It just flows and while it is more dense and takes a little while to quilt . . .
the overall effect is totally worth it. Just look at all of that yummy quilted texture :) It just makes me want to snuggle up in front of a fire.
Have a Happy Quilting Day!
Linking this finish up to Amada's and Sarah's :)
