March ’17 OMG Finish

Two and a half years into my quilting journey, I continue to learn something with every single project. When I admired Libs Elliott’s random HST quilts, I did not focus on them being made with solid fabrics. And another great example of a random HST quilt is this one made by Anja@Anja Quilts, again made with solids. I think this Imprint collection by Katarina Roccella would probably have worked better with a simple hourglass or star pattern. All that being said, I am happy with my Quasi-Random Imprint HST quilt, but I spent a lot more time designing it than I thought I would.


Taking a photo of it yesterday in Northern New Mexico’s spring time wind was crazy. I snapped this one pic and then the wind blew it over the fence to my neighbor’s yard. Luckily I had a reacher handy and was able to quickly snag it before it got carried off even further. This flimsy is now at my local quilt store, Thread Bear, waiting to be quilted. We haven’t made a decision yet on how it will be quilted. I’m thinking large spirals might soften all the angles or possibly an orange peel design. Please feel free to make quilting suggestions. I’ll be stopping by to talk with Michael at Thread Bear in a week or so.

    Well, I can’t wait to see it in person! I like its liveliness which seems very appropriate for Rachel. I learned something new today. I always thought of OMG as the current digital shortcut, but the comment above straightened me out!!


  3. The time you put into designing how the quilt top went together was worth it; it looks wonderful, Mary! And the wind can be such a huge challenge for photography. I’m glad you were able to get the quilt before it blew out of reach.

    This is a great finish Mary . I loved Anjas quilt too at the time and it’s great to see your version . I think spirals might be interesting ? But I’m no expert
