Well, I suffered through with my pins and I got the Metro Rings top all sewn together and pressed!
Since it is a nice sunny day, I ran outside to grab a couple of pictures so I could show the quilt top off!
I love seeing the quilt top this way - you can't see all the woopsies! This top is by no means perfect and I think that this was, for me, the most challenging of the Sew Kind of Wonderful patterns I have done; but, I still love it! I love most quilts made from 1930's reproduction fabrics :-D I think they are so cheerful! I have plans for another Metro Rings quilt and I know the things that I, personally, have to do differently - for one - I have to sew at a true quarter inch seam and not a scant one when sewing the 2.5" strips together. There are more; but, this is the main one.
I also used Kona white for the background and Kona solids for the corner triangles - what doesn't go with Kona?
Taking pictures of this top was pretty amusing since it is a bit windy today. The quilt was flying in and out of good lighting but it created some neat shots :-)
Gotta love the dappled September lighting ;-)
Now to fold the quilt onto a hanger to await it's turn to be machine quilted! I am pretty sure I know how I want to quilt this one; but, if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
