Here is what you will find inside:
Long time ago (about a year ago) in a studio not too far away . . . we made some sweet little 3″ Sawtooth Stars using Ember Reds & Evergreens, Toasty and Sweet Emilie. I hadn’t made a zig zag setting for a while – let’s do that! I selected a neutral print for the zig zag and a soft print for the border, both from Sweet Emilie. As it was being sewn together the quilt began to feel ‘very familiar’. Hummmm. . . .
Without looking or thinking, we made the same quilt ‘again’, meaning we had made a quilt with the exact same number of blocks, same size blocks, and zig zag setting, but different border treatment and of course different colors. Well, duh! See what happens when you really like something.
I sent the new quilt along with the old quilt to Maggi Honeyman in Texas who machine quilted the first quilt, as I wanted the newer quilt quilted the same, I loved what she did.
I decided to offer the new quilt to Quiltmaker and sent along the story and the picture of the first quilt. They were interested in the darker colors that felt like Fall. I still love the first quilt that we made in 2007, however the new quilt has soft charm.
What do you think?
Here is the inadvertent re-make:
I will enjoy both of them.
Now ‘you’ know the rest of the story.
