It's Week 25 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and I am excited to share another Happy Quilting Marathon Quilt. And wow, this one was pushing to get it done this week and I quilted, and bound the entire queen size quilt today, but I am super thrilled to share it!!! Nordic Nights sure looks pretty in happy Spring colors!!!!
This pattern is one of my Happy Quilting patterns
and I just love making it. It really is a fun pattern to make and uses my Modified Drunkard Path Templates
. And yes, It is curved piecing, but it truly is not as difficult as we make it out to be in our heads. I have a step by step tutorial here
for using these templates, and it only takes a few blocks practice to really get the hang of it ;) This is the queen size version, and it finishes at 95" x 95".
These fabrics are Painted Meadow
by Robin Pickens
for Moda Fabrics. The line is a few years old, as I was originally making this for a Charity Quilt to auction off at UQSM but then good ol Covid hit, and the retreat got cancelled. Now that it is all done, I think I will find another Charity event to donate it to. It's just such a pretty quilt, and I feel like that was it's intended purpose to start, and should be it's finish as well ;)
And even though I quilted it all today, I still wanted to do custom quilting on this!!! It took a little longer, but was totally worth it. I used my original Nordic Nights quilting plan as a jumping off point, and then altered it to make it a little faster ;) Still pretty feathers in the background, but I quilted them all in one direction and then changed the block centers to wavy lines to highlight the star. Then all over paisleys in the blocks, but I just used a nice pink thread that matched with all the colors ;) I just love the way it turned out, and still got it done in time for HQM this week!!! Wouldn't want to miss the deadline with only 1 more to go :)
And truly, I am just thrilled that this quilt is done!!!! I was saving it towards the end because I really wanted to quilt it up fancy, and I am so glad that even with a time crunch, I still did it up pretty fancy. I am just so happy to have another version of my Nordic Nights
quilt and I excited to find out where it can do some good.
And that is Quilt #25 - Nordic Nights ;) 25 Down and only 1 more quilt to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :) Oh my goodness, so, so, so close!!!
And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
