Metro Rings Finish

This quilt has been waiting for quite some time to be finished
and it finally is.
It went to my LAQ a couple of weeks ago
and came back earlier in the week.

I was able to get the binding sewn on yesterday and
am thrilled with this finish.

This quilt was a challenge for the
History of Quilting group I belong to.
"Do something you have wanted to do, but haven't."
My challenge to myself was making something with

The pattern is called Metro Rings
and it uses the Quick Curve Ruler.
Once I figured the ruler out, this was a pretty easy
pattern to make.
This quilting design is perfect for this quilt.
It's quilted with a light gray thread.

I just love the turquoise, aqua and grays together.
It's the first time I've really used gray in a quilt
and it won't be the last.

This quilt is going to live at my house,
at least for a while.


I don't know why I waited so long to get this quilt finished,
but it is now and I love it.

Happy Quilting!

nice colors - the pattern is very close to a wedding ring quilt minus some of the work! I made two wedding ring quilts and this one looks a bit easier to do

Love how the quilting mirrors the curves in the patchwork. You made a gorgeous quilt. This will make someone dance with delight!!!

What a great finish. I was so impressed with your first posting about Metro Rings way back months ago I bought the pattern and the Quick Curve ruler. I haven't started it yet but I'm thinking of using my Depression Era repros....(I know some people don't care for them...lol...) but I love them. So, once again, I hope you KNOW that imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery. You always inspire! God bless...have a great day. Things have been hectic here during this WV Sprinter! (That's what I'm calling this spring which feels like winter!)

Since you have started this quilt, I have loved your color combination.That aqua and gray are soothing yet very modern. I am happy for your completion and think it is just beautiful.
