Here's the quilt I made from the book "Quilt Modern". It pretty closely follows one of the quilts in the book, I just loved the colors and look of it. I added the skinny bars of color to break up all the gray. I love pebble quilting so that's how I stitched the gray area, as it was in the book.
I also made a quilt after reading "Inspired Art Quilting" by Jean Wells'. A photo I took in Bermuda (see last post) was the idea source for this quilt. I loved the orange berries against the blue ocean and the neutral grays of the branches. I really enjoyed making this quilt and know that I will make more photo inspired abstract quilts in the future. Again, no measuring!
This weekend I am beginning a huge project - reorganizing my whole house! I'm flying in my sister, Valerie, to help me for a few weeks (yes, it will take that long). I'm also going to rework part of my studio and go through ALL of my supplies and get rid of a lot of things that are clogging up my life. I'm going to squeeze in some time to sew and blog so look back to see what I'm up to!
