Metro Hoops!

This last week I started making a Metro Hoops quilt.  I needed one for myself because the original Metro Hoops quilt is in Arizona living at Helen's house.

I had fun picking out the fabrics and colors for the quilt.  I used a "Color Me Happy" Jelly Roll by Vanessa with V and Co. (which I love by the way) for the curves and some Kaufman linen/cotton blend flax for the background fabric.


It came together quickly.  It was just finding the time to work on it.


Perfect sunny day yesterday to take a picture to show off the colors!  


...now onto the quilting.  Always bitter sweet for me.  I always fall in love with the quilt before I quilt it and sometimes I don't want to start adding more textures to the quilt...I'm weird that way and I'm sure I will love it when I'm done.

Quilting phase is bittersweet? What a surprising sentiment coming from a master longarm quilter like you! I know what you mean... But in my case I'm afraid of ruining my hard work because my machine quilting skills are weaker than my piecing skills. I'm sure your quilt is going to be GORGEOUS when it's finished!

I can relate to Rebecca Grace. I'm about finished piecing "Metro Rings" and have my "Mod Olives" ready to quilt, but the thought of machine quilting makes me want to start piecing again!lol
