bloggers´s quilt festival fall 2010
it´s this time of the year again: blogger´s quilt festival, initiated by Amy of Amys creative side - thanks so much Amy, great work!!
so welcome to all the quilters from all over the world who found me this way - and of course welcome to the regular folks, too!!
i chose to show you my retro mini quilt for this festival: it is not very big (hence the "mini" :-), about 21inches or half a meter square.
the colored pieces are made with some repro or retro-looking fabric and the 1 inch squares are tiny for my taste but i managed to put them together.
(and on the "retro-looking": before i made this quilt i actually did not really notice the retro-charm of the Katie Jump Rope fabrics by Denyse Schmidt. how strange.. take for instance the green binding fabric. strange.)
the colors are soft and warm but the natural solid really makes them shine, the quilting of such a small piece was a joy to do and though it´s far from perfect it is one of my better handiwork.
the wheel was not as hard to sew as i thought and it fits the fabric choices very nicely i think.
the straight, modern quilting then is a contrast which was intended and works for me.
this little quilt is hanging in my sewing room above my sewing machine and i am happy everytime i look at it, it comforts and inspires me.
so thanks for stopping by, i´d love to hear from you and please go and see lots and lots of other quilts right here, i know i will!
and for adventurous readers from the US: please check out my page about apartment swapping in 2011 (you can find it below my header), maybe you´re interested to stay in Munich, Bavaria for a while :-)
