I finally completed another version of my Boston Uncommon quilt pattern. In exchange for me making this quilt in these colors, Dawn Williams made a generous donation to the Michigan Organ Transplant Family Assist Fund.
I started piecing this quilt at the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild retreat at the end of January. It was supposed to be a queen, but I miss-calculated and it turned into a king. I had all the blocks made by the time I realized how large it was going to be, so I decided to just go with it. The final size is 92″ x 102″.
I quilted a king on my Juki once before, but it was so hard to move all that weight around. I decided to send this one out. This is the first time I have had someone else quilt one of my tops. Kathy Koch of Thread Bear Quilting did a fabulous job.

I’ve always liked this pattern. A little fancier version of a Trip Around the World, which is what I have on my bed at the moment.
It is nice to hear from you. It has been a while. Boston Common and Trip Around the World are very similar. In the Boston Common pattern the blocks are set on point making the rounds look rectangular like a square in a square. In the Trip Around the World pattern the blocks are set square making the rounds look on point. Same idea, just different perspectives. I have a version of this quilt, in different colors, on my guest room bed at the moment. I guess we have similar taste.
