This week, I was contacted by Sandi about a photo of a quilt I took last summer while vacationing in Montana.
Sandi was wondering if I knew any info about this particular quilt. Who made it? Where to find the pattern?
At first I was just gonna let Sandi in on the disappointing fact that I sadly I had NO IDEA! I was really just lame and just took a photo of this masterpiece and didn't even think of writing down any info about it. Then a curious hair sprang up in me, and I just had to find out. So I went to good old Google:D Google Images actually. After scrolling for a few minutes I saw this mini quilt:
Wait a second, is that the same design? It couldn't be? It is! The image led me to this forum.
Which lead to me finding out that it is the same pattern and its by Judy Niemeyer. The pattern is a foundation paper piecing called Bali Wedding Star and can be purchased on her site here.
This is THE QUILT! I mean, a double wedding ring with diamond stars! Can it get any more beautiful? What a masterpiece!
Then I looked back I my photo, and I realized I was standing in front of the original! So cool! Okay, maybe I'm geeking-out right now, but Wow!
Sandi is going for it. How about you? Who, me? Well, I thought having the double wedding ring quilt on my bucket list of things to make was high bar, but Judy Niemeyer takes it up a notch!
Just thought I'd share in case anyone else was interested. Anyone want to start a QAL or Flickr group?
If you are daring like, my new friend Sandi, please share with me/us. Love to see your fabric selection and photos along the way.
