Xando is finished, one of them. The pattern calls for 16 blocks instead of the 9 shown. With 19 finished blocks and a last minute baby announcement I compromised. Using 2 of my test blocks I finished 2 tops. The one shown will be my gift to one of my customers.
The good thing about splitting up my blocks is after quilting this one I can make any adjustment on the quilt I keep. Quilting the X blocks were a no brainer. For the O blocks I will need to do some pondering before I quilt the next one.
If I make this quilt again there will be some color changes. While I love this in blue I’m not particularly happy with color placement. The darkest and lightest blue’s need to be swapped in the X blocks to define the X.
Overall I am happy with the quilt and the pattern. One of my testers in nearing completion with no issues in the pattern. The planned release date is Dec 20. Provided the testers find no errors.
Would you like to win a free Xando pattern?
When the pattern is released in December I will be giving away at least 2 pdf patterns. Put your thinking caps on and come up with your best quilting tips.
Some of you know I am a newbie longarmer. A few months ago I posted Info wanted:Hand guided long arm quilting.
I’d like to expand this post for myself and to share with others who are still learning the in’s and outs of quilting. So I will be asking you to share your tried and true quilting tools and tips around December 20th.
See what others are working on
Bye for now
