Sometimes opportunities come along when working with sponsors to get involved in a really cool project… For aaages I’ve loved the patterns they’ve been making in collaborationg with Art Gallery Fabrics – AGF Stitched – so I was really excited when they asked if I’d like to make their newest quilt pattern, Symphony.
I had been lusting after Charleston by Amy Sinibaldi for a few weeks, so I chose to work with this gorgeous range of fabric to make my Symphony quilt. And I even took a pretty big step, and chose a navy and white geometric print – Marble Stepping Stones – to use as the background. No, I promise no one has kidnapped this neutral solids/linen background quilter, and this isn’t a secret quilty cry for help 😉
Thankfully, it actually worked out, and I love the way it looks! It came together really quickly too. It’s the perfect quilt to sit and chain piece, in fact, I sewed it all up in one day at my guild’s sit and sew day last month! Finishing at 72″ x 72″, it’s great size, too. I’ve got The Row townhouse print for the backing, and the dramatic Nightfall Magnolia for binding, so it’s going to be such a sweet quilt. I think I’ll do a light loopy stipple for the quilting.
