I haven't been sewing much lately, just writing, writing and more writing. I finished this awhile ago. It was planned for one of the quilts in the book, but it didn't fit. Good for me! I adore this quilt and when I have a free minute or two it's going to be a pattern. This is the Broken Cogs quilt. Most of the fabrics are Daisy Janie's Geo Grand. So bold, so graphic...simply perfect for this quilt.
The design was inspired the parts of an old meat grinder that we use to grind cranberries at Thanksgiving. (I know, a food processor would be faster, but it's tradition in our house!)
It's taken me so long to post it because taking a good picture of it was nearly impossible. It's big, it's dark, and it's been either freezing cold, snowy or wet. I finally moved all the living room furniture and threw it on the floor. Don't you LOVE the back? I do.
I collaborated on the quilting with Miss Angela again. I love the way she emphasized the sharp edges of the cogs. There are straight lines in the arms of the cogs to give it a bit of a raw, industrial feel and then the curves to give the background an amazing texture.
I'm so happy with the whole thing.
Just is case you wanted to look at it some more!
Oh, by the way, Angela is celebrating a little anniversary this week. You should pop over and say hi and congratulations!
