So here is Silvia's Steampunk quilt. The pattern is by Jen Kingwell Designs. Silvia chose to piece her Steampunk in reds, whites, and gray/blacks -- I absolutely love her choices! I have to apologize on the photos. Normally I pin the quilt to a board and take it outside in the beautiful sunlight for the best effect. I'll explain a bit more, the board is 8' x 8' and I need another person to hold the board while I take the photo. Yep, you guessed it, no one is around right now so you'll have to settle for indoor studio pics.
Silvia wanted to keep a modern impression with the quilting so we went with a lot of ruler work. Oh, and I finally had a chance to use one of the new stencils by Jodi Robinson/JR Designs (although not for its actual use). I only used a tiny little corner of this one - yes, I could have done it without the stencil, but that would have involved more planning and thinking - the stencil made it super quick to line up! You can find these templates here.
