I am back with my second sample of my newest pattern, Golden Hour. Today I'll be sharing all about the cover quilt!
I debated a lot whether I would use the original quilt for the cover or something different. I played around with about a dozen mockups but kept going back to one with pinks and blues - which, if you've been around here for more than minute, surprises you zero percent haha. These are, after all, my favorite color combination!
In the end, I decided that while I love the colors in the original quilt, they weren't 100% me and I wanted this to be 100% my take on modern medallion quilts. So I got some Confetti Cotton Solids and got to work on this version.
Once again, the second I put together the center block for this, I knew I was onto something. There's just something so incredibly beautiful about that center block. I am honestly a little obsessed haha
I really wish I had taken more pictures of the sewing process, but this quilt required all of my attention. I was fully focused on sewing whenever I was working on it and barely stopped to breathe.
I can fully say the end result was completely worth it, though! The day after I finished the quilt top, I walked down the block with my mom and we snapped this pictures. I love how the colors look against the pines in the background :)
For the quilting, I knew I wanted something whimsy and fun to help soften the structure in the pattern design. I went with the Ginger Snap panto and Lilo at Trace Creek Quilting did a wonderful job!
Last week, I took this beauty along with the original Golden Hour quilt, to the Now Now Space, a photography studio I rented for 2 hours and took some beautiful photos!
