I followed Melissa's tutorial, called Playing the Scales, and am pleased to report that this project came together relatively quickly. The only deviation I made from her instructions was that I did a lot more laying out in advance than just grabbing and chain piecing. And I only managed to flip my rows around, necessitating unpicking, twice!
The quilt is backed in a green and black paisley (no idea of the name, sorry), a grey print from JoAnn's, and a Cloud9 print that came from the remnant bin at JoAnn's (no selvedge, sorry).
I finished the quilt about a month ago, when we had a foot of snow on the ground. That's kind of unusual for Louisville, so I figured I should try and take advantage of the situation for some "artsy" quilt photography. And, to show the ever-changing moods of Mother Nature in March, it's now 70 degrees and sunny today!
And here's Lindsay testing out Jack's quilt to make sure it's up to par. I love it when quilts are used!
And speaking of used, she recently posted an Instagram pic of big brother-to-be, James Michael, with his quilt by Aunt Kacey - is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen?? (You can find me on Instagram at kpwarren07. I'm trying to be a more regular poster, but I'm already a regular viewer!)
