I'm thinking quilting might be a VORTEX!!
This is not my quilt, my version will be in my next post. My DD made this quilt. It was accepted at International Quilt Festival in Houston. We had a wonderful trip together so she could see her quilt hanging.
Made of indigo and snow solids; it is machine (paper pieced), hand quilted and hand applique.
So many color options with beautiful results!!
|Most common question: How long did it take to make?|
It was fun to meet people at the show and see all of the fabulous entries and exhibits.
We also enjoyed standing back and listening to attendees comment on the quilt.
"Stare at it until you fall over"
"Jarring, but I can't stop looking at it"
"Look at the center!!!"
She made the quilt in the spring - with a BS in Architecture, drafting a pattern was no problem. I was the happy art patron who left for work in the morning, entertained by the progress each evening.
We had some rich discussions on designing vs. drafting. It is similar to the Red and white quilt exhibited in NYC. Vortex in Variation is queen sized, has uniform borders with an organic corner/side design. Obviously she has a fair amount of sewing experience and it wasn't her first quilt. She was able to get very accurate results with paper piecing.
You may have noticed a new button on my blog side bar.
By popular demand she created a paper pieced pattern for her quilt. It is for sale in our Etsy Store.
In my next post I'll show you my multi color version (call me 'pattern tester') with yet another corner design.
