I just love it when I get pictures of projects inspired by my quilts!
A few weeks back Liz was in town visiting her daughter and dropped by to share an amazing story with me. After her sister passed away she wanted to make each of her four nieces a quilt from their mom’s clothes.
“I had agonized over what to do for a full year, until seeing your quilt at the shop. Even so, I still didn’t have had any idea how to go about it, but then I discovered your blog with a picture of the quilt, along with a wonderful explanation of the entire process. THANK you!!...Liz”
Last fall Liz saw the quilt I made for my sister out of our dad’s ties, and she must have been inspired because she returned home to sew up a storm for Christmas making the 4 quilts in just 2 months! How's that for a dedicated quilter and a really special aunt?
Liz said that when the girls opened their quilts, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Oh my, this gives me the goosies.
Thanks for sharing…
Quiltologist Diane has a really nice husband. Last year he gave her the gift of quilting by signing her up for an improv quilting workshop with Denyse Schmidt.
If there’s one word to describe “Improvisational Quilting” it would have to be “PLAY.”
The idea is to let loose, follow your gut instincts and “go for it” in order to create complex graphic designs.
Denyse encourages students to randomly pull strips of fabrics from a bag and then working with a design wall, place them in a pleasing and wonky manner.
Diane, an avid fan of the excel spreadsheet, says the improv process was totallly liberating so she named her quilt according...
No—your eyes are not deceiving you. The distortion you see is not the result of a very happy new year celebration but rather the effects of some really cool 3-D design and precision paper piecing.
Log Cabin with a Lens was designed by Valerija Mezhybovska and pieced by local quilter Chris Johnson who obviously has a talent for creating optical illusions.
Kudos to Chris for his amazing op art masterpiece!
