The fabric is Road 15 by Sweetwater by Moda. I just love this fabric, and it has a special little treat for me as well. When the gals at Sweetwater were designing it they asked for people to submit their street address to add into the design. And yup, my street address is printed in the texty fabric. So fun!!!
And yes, there are size options !!!! In Your Neighborhood has options for a Baby, Picnic, and Queen. The quilt I made is the Picnic size :)
And I am so excited to share some of the quilting detail ;) I quilted this on the long-arm and I tried out some new things and they turned out so great. So happy!!
In all of the print squares, I did a echo repeat rectangle pattern moving inward. And yup, I used a ruler for the first time on the long-arm. It was so wonderful. It really helps to have the right tools for the job. I just love how nice and straight they are and the little diamond effect it creates ;)
In the background, I used a super fun "tile" quilting pattern that I learned from Angela Walter's Machine Quilting Negative Space Craftsy class. It worked perfectly with the pattern as it added to the feel of the "neighborhoods". And more importantly, it was so much fun to quilt!
And lastly, in the "roads" or at least that's what they seem like to me, I did a little back and forth wiggle. These were a little harder then they looked for me. It was difficult to keep my wiggles the same distance apart and the corners were a little tricky. But they got better the more I practiced :)
I hope you like In Your Neighborhood. I get a huge grin every time I walk past it on the table. It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful it is to see an idea translated into a quilt. I just love the process!!
And speaking of the process, Jennifer Overstreet of Gable House & Co. did a wonderful little interview with me on being a pattern designer and it posted this morning. You can find it here :)
Alright, I will wrap it up now. Here is one more link to the pattern. I have listed them on sale for $5.00. They will be $5.00 until next weekend (or when I remember to change the listing) and then be listed for the original price of $8.50. They can be found in my Craftsy Shop as well as my Etsy Shop.
Have a Happy Quilting Weekend. I know I plan to ;)
Linking this finish to Amanda's and Sarah's
