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.
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.
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!
