Here is my quilt for the Marsala Quilt Challenge! I must admit that I like this color better after using it. Not sure I will be using it again.... but I like it better. I was not a fan at first. I like Marsala in home decor (it's almost the exact color of my kitchen) but I was not sure how I was going to get it into a quilt.
Anyways, this came about because I saw some lovely embroidery and wondered what it would look like translated into a quilt. I came up with this design and after a lot of changes, I really like the way it came together.
Another thing about this quilt is that it was made on two different machines. I inherited my grandmother's sewing machine about 8 years ago when she moved in with my parents. It was a White brand machine. I am not positive what year it is from, but ebay lists it as "vintage". I don't think it's that old, but after 8 years, and tons of time put in, I decided that it was time for an upgrade. So, in the middle of making this quilt, I got a new Janome Memory Craft 6600p. It's AMAZING. I did all of the applique on the White machine and I did all of the quilting and binding on my Janome. What a change. I can't believe how the Janome sews. It is smooth.
The finished product is 22.5" x 22.5"
The back is pieced together using strips of the same colors.
Thanks for another fun challenge!
