I have been helping a new quilter make a very special quilt for her older sister who is getting married in September. This ambitious young woman is the daughter of my DH’s best friend, and I am thrilled to be asked to help her. She has never made a quilt before and wants to make a king sized quilt for the new couple…she’s a woman after my own heart!
She found a version of the lover’s knot pattern to make, which I think is a pretty good beginners pattern; the corner element is a bit of a challenge, but the extra work and patience will really pay off in the end. I think her sister will be thrilled! I will be quilting this one, if it can be completed before I start school in the fall, and I am tentatively thinking of a heart pantograph at this point.
I used EQ6 to work up two color schemes of the quilt, and after I did that, I decided I may have to make one for myself!
Which one do you prefer?
