Pedal to the Metal 2.0

When I was up in Flon Flon for the North Star Quilt Guild Show in April, Mami's Country Quilts was there as a vendor with acres of batiks to drool over.  Kathy and I  decided to treat ourselves and make another version of our Pedal to the Metal quilt.  This time around it was Kathy's turn to piece and quilt our sample.

My favorite part about this version of Pedal to the Metal is how the diamonds extend in to the border of the quilt.  

We had been wanting to redo the cover of Pedal to the Metal for a while now.  Our first attempt was okay, be we were rushing to get it done, and it just never felt quite right.

Here is version 2. 

We decided to let version A be the focus so that the woven look that we like so much could come through. Quilts B & C play a nice supporting role from the quilt ladder.  I am still a little surprised that we ended up with an indoor shot of the quilts, as Kathy is usually known for her outdoor shots like the one below.  It is good to mix things up every now and again I guess!

 Pedal to the Metal (2.0) is available in our Etsy shop.
