Tularosa & Cimarron

Tularosa & Cimarron

I’ve taken to naming my quilts after towns in New Mexico.  The names of other people’s quilts always sound so clever. It’s a hard thing to do – naming a quilt. So I decided to just google ‘towns in New Mexico’, and pick one that fits.

I received this top in 2012 as part of a barter for longarm services.  The woman had numerous unfinished tops to choose from, and I chose this one.

 

It’s been hanging in my closet(s), first in Texas, then came with me to NM.  It’s not really my type of quilt. I probably thought I’d practice on it…and never did.  I decided to cut it up and play around with the blocks, and ended up with this:

So, this was better.  But no magic going on. I then chose to cut arcs and make a version of a double wedding ring. The pattern is by Sewing Party, called My Wedding Ring.  

 

Progress…. Add a little color in there:

Now I’m loving it.  Onto the longarm:

And the big reveal~a very different quilt to be sure.

TULAROSA

 

Cimarron is based on a Kaffe Fassett pattern called Haze Kilim. I went a little rogue on the border, but not much.  I used Patina Batiks by Hoffman – I love them.  

I think there are 11 different shades in here.

Adding the sashing in between blocks.

CIMARRON

It’ll be for sale, as soon as I end my procrastination that is called…’List your things in your Etsy store’.

I miss this baby….

Thanks for checking in!
