Shari - from New Jersey - sent me this pretty aqua (one of my favorite colors) Metro Rings quilt to quilt.
She used a bright jelly roll for the rings.
It's made from one of the "Sew Kind of Wonderful" curved piecing patterns.
You can purchase the pattern here on their website.
I love Shari's color choices.
She said I could quilt anything I wanted to - I love that!
So I looked at other Metro Rings quilts and settled on this:
I quilted straight lines in the large open areas then added a string of pearls to out line that area, "L's" in the football areas, looped the quarter square corners, and lined the rings.
I love the solid pink & white 1/4 squares at each intersection.
This backing is a very happy pink and orange - perfect!
Shari is going to bind it with the solid aqua - good choice!
Thanks, Shari....now I need to get mine out and start sewing!
I chose a Downton Abby jelly roll and a very soft pink for the background.
Not my usual choice of colors but I needed at least ONE quilt with Downton Abby prints!
You need a "quick curve ruler" that the ladies at Sew Kind of Wonderful have created - it's worth it!
They have SO many beautiful patterns to choose from.
