Client Quilt - Metro Rings v2


This is just so beautiful.

This is the sister quilt to the Metro Rings client quilt I blogged about earlier.  Made by sisters at a workshop.  The pattern is from Sew Kind of Wonderful.

The bitty pieces in the rings received straight lines.  I extensively used the QCR Curvit ruler (no affiliation, just a fan) - the longarm ruler designed to work with this pattern.  The arcs in the border are with this ruler, and straight line beadboard / piano keys are above the arcs.

The melon shape in the middle of the arcs was echoed with the same curve, and filled with ovals.

The blocks created where the arcs meet has an echoed triangle, which makes a lovely star when the whole block is viewed.  This design is also on the Metro Rings v1 - a shared design element for the sisters :)


The whitespace between the arcs received a curved crosshatch using the same Curvit ruler.

A few photos to enjoy ...



 The back is a cream on cream print.


The batting was an 80/20, the top thread is So Fine 402, a nice creamy colour, and the bobbin thread is Omni.
