Default Ringo's Sister

This is my third Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. This year I changed my colors including switching the light and dark. When all the units were finished and we got Bonnie's reveal I liked hers a lot, but while we were waiting I had been playing w/ different ways the pieces could all be laid out and was really drawn to one of my "play layouts". I am calling this Ringo's Sister b/c it has all the same units of On Ringo Lake and in nearly the same %. I did add a hst, and there are fewer of the neutral / dark FG and a few more of the other FG. So the same "dna" but in a different configuration like a "sister". ORL has an en point layout, mine has a square layout that appears to be en point. When it got to the border I needed something that would hold it's own but not visually compete w/ the busy center, so I decided to do this simple, but dramatic border, my first curved border. I enjoyed playing in the mystery, and love many of the ORL quilts the way Bonnie envisioned them, but am equally in love w/ my version.

The back is a pieced back from a thrift store striped sheet. It is assembled and quilted on my domestic machine w/ a quilt as you go technique. It finishes 72 x 90

Really lovely version of ORL. Great job on the scallop borders. Those can be tricky.

That came out so beautiful, Kass! I love your version! And that super scalloped border is amazing. Have no idea how you did that.

Wow, wow, wow! Fabulous.

What a fantastic finish! I have admired your unique fabric selection, layout re-design and the specific techniques you've used since the very beginning of the the ORL mystery. It's been so much fun to watch and I appreciate all I've learned through the process. Ringo's Sister is a beauty
