The pattern is based off of the 12+2=Q pattern from Oh Fransson, but we adapted the pattern to make two twin quilts instead.
Here's twin #1. I started quilting this right after finishing my Sanctuary quilt, so I was a little bored with stippling. Plus, I thought the large expanses of solid colors could use something a little more interesting. For Twin #1 I decided to do loopy quilting.
I couldn't decide if the loopy quilting was a cool contrast to this modern design, or if it was just discordant. Luckily I had Twin #2 to try something different!
For this one, I tried the robotic, boxy meandering stitch (tutorial from Oh Fransson here). It took me a long time to feel comfortable doing this! It feels very awkward. At first, I got caught up trying to make each angle 90 degrees (not gonna happen), and my stitch length is all over the place. Up close, it looks pretty wonky, but I like the overall effect.
The backs were both supposed to be Kona Coal, but I bogarted some of my mom's Coal to make my Sanctuary quilt. So I
My mom bought the printed fabrics as a custom bundle from Fabric Worm so I don't really know what any of them are, but I like them!
The solids are Kona Coal and Kona Sage (I think we've established that this is a great color but a bad name). The binding is dark brown.
I'm happy with they way these turned out, but after these and my Sanctuary quilt, I'm ready for something in a different color palette! And also smaller!
