Quilt Festival Time at Amy's Creative Side, and she has asked us to show a quilt. I have decided to show you a quilt that is keeping me cozy as the days are getting colder. This is the last big quilt I have finished - I have done a couple of wall hangings since then, and have progressed on other ones, but this is the last big finish.
It is different from anything I have ever done. The circles are all African prints that I bought at a quilt show. They were cut using a CD as a template, and are raw edge appliqued to a big background fabric. I added pieces for the border, and quilted it using my walking foot. The quilt is designed to keep evil spirits confused enough to stay out. I think I will eventually add more quilting to it. It is finished now - it is bound and labeled, but I reserve the right to add more quilting stitches.
The quilt with its beige background fits in anyplace, yet has lots of interest and zing. I like the shiny fabrics! It is "different" and may not appeal to everybody, but it does appeal to me. It doesn't have that instant "pretty" factor, but it's like the ugly duckling that I've just grow to love.
If you are here from Amy's blog, welcome. Please feel free to take a look around.
