I have so enjoyed making this quilt. It's just a simple patchwork number made with a couple of charm packs (Charlevoix by Simpson & Minick for Moda). It's not my typical color scheme or style, but maybe that part's of its charm. I keep envisioning it draped over a white wicker "settee" on a big front porch.
While the pattern itself is simple, I sorta went crazy with the quilting. I free motioned the red Amercan Jane Pindot border:
Finally, I tried my hand at stitch in the ditch for the very first time. It wasn't as bad as I thought, but it was a bit trying on the eyes. I started out using the edging foot that came with my Viking, but quickly abandoned it for the walking foot. The stitching was perfect, but without the even feed the fabric started bunching. I'm starting to understand why so many quilters gravitate towards Pfaff machines with the built in walking foot.

P.S. this sweet quilt will be available in my Etsy shop as soon as it's finished!
