Right before Jamie Swanson was about to launch her Luminary Quilt, she reached out to me to see if I would be interested in making the pattern, which I absolutely jumped at! Not only is the pattern like crazy amazing, but I knew exactly what fabric I wanted to use for it: Me+You Indah Batiks. Thank goodness Fabric Bubb had exactly what I needed!
I definitely wanted a solid for the background and, since I wanted the same texture throughout, I went with the Flint Colored Indah Solid from Me+You. Such a smart choice I think.
After this, I was honestly at a standstill. I knew I wanted more, but I’m new to the quilty world and techniques so I was stumped. Thank goodness I have a quilty Yoda named Nydia Kehnle who was all like why don’t you echo quilt some of the diamonds? After googling the definition of “echo quilting,” I, like Luke Skywalker, felt the force within me and went to town with 10 different colors of Aurifil thread. And voila…… The Me+You Luminary Quilt: Mister Domestic Style was born!
