My friend from Idaho, Domini, made this beautiful
"Steam Punk" quilt.
I've had my little eye on this pattern for some time and after seeing her quilt in "real life" I decided to purchase it
along with the templates.
It's a Jen Kingwell design.
I'm in love with anything she creates.
I want to hang out with Jen Kingwell - one day I will....
You can purchase the pattern and templates
This is a photo before I started quilting.
Domini uses wool batting in most of her quilts.
It makes them so soft and drape-y.
I love her color selection.
I outlined the spokes and centers then
pebbled the background.
I didn't want to detract from her piecing.
Then she chooses this for the backing.....
oh, how I love this print!
Beautiful - so beautiful!
Notice how some of her blocks are "floating" and some of them have their own background.
I'm going to steal that idea!
I need to get started on mine, but I haven't picked out my fabrics yet.
Thank you, Domini, for the inspiration.
I love it!
