Today I'm working on a quilt for Melanie in Ohio. She wants a 72" x 84" quilt to hang in her foyer that goes with her abstract rug and a custom painted ceiling. She emailed me some photos of the space. I mailed her a pile of possible fabric swatches and she chose her favorites including abstract prints, batiks, a few modern prints, and some solids. This quilt contains all of them.
I'm in the process of sewing the horizontal rows to each other. That's why there's a white space in the middle, but that will be closed up. And there will be a 6" outer border. Her inspiration was my Serendipity quilt. It looks so much different done all in solids vs. prints, doesn't it?
Back to the sewing machine. We have new snow and ice. Perfect for quilting!
This Tree of Life selvage quilt was made by Cynthia Fuelling. It is one of the quilts in my 2008 AQS book: Quilts from the Selvage Edge. I like Cynthia's version with the nice border! My quilt is shown below.
A modern, light and airy version of the Asterisk quilt! This was made by Angela Pingel and featured on her blog: Cut to Pieces. I love that black block. Cover it with your thumb and the lights seem to go out in this quilt. Uncover it and it's snappy again!
