Aurora Borealis Quilt

Finished Quilt Size: 53″ by 53″

This is my absolute favorite quilt I have ever, ever, EVER made! (and I’ve made A LOT of quilts)  This is also the first quilt I’ve made to have gotten published and featured on the cover of Quiltmaker Magazine.

I originally designed this on good old fashioned graphing paper, just as I do with all my quilt designs.  However, I thought about how embarrassing it would be to present my little graph paper sketches to a national quilt magazine, so I decided to step up my game and invest in professional quilt design software.  (In case you’re wondering about the software, I use EQ7 Electric Quilt Software, and it’s awesome.)  It took some monkeying around and a bit of practice, but I learned how to efficiently use it and designed my quilt pattern on it.  I LOVE how it turned out!

If you’re interest in the pattern, it is available in my Etsy shop:  Aurora Borealis Quilt Pattern

Some pretty turquoise for the quilt binding.  Such a pretty and vibrant color, and helps frame the quilt perfectly.
