This quilt pattern was in The Quiltmaker magazine, Mar/Apr 2018.  I machine pieced it and with the help of my design wall I could assemble it. Each piece connected with the four corner pieces so the design wall made it a lot easier. I machine quilted it. Unfortunately as a novice machine quilter I should have chosen a print backing that would hide
the quilting. The solid green paisley showed every bobble vividly. So I used invisible thread to solve that problem. It did. After I washed the quilt things looked a lot better.  The quilt is 96 by 96 so it is large and I must admit I prefer the hand quilting, both for the look and the process. I plan to give this quilt to Amy.
