“Hot House Orchids” : Entry for Bloggers Quilt Festival

So, this is my second quilt I am entering in Amy’s Bloggers Quilt Festival.

AmysCreativeSide.com

I loved this project for so many reasons:

  • The study of the color radiant orchid
  • My first ever appliqué quilt
  • I was exploring the using of lines and borders and inspired by Quilting: Color + Lines  by Yoshiko Jinzenji

HothouseOrchids_Front

The fabric for the front is Alison Glass’ line Clover Sunshine, which has such fabulous colors.

I just used some irregular straight line quilting on this one, to ensure the quilting did not take away from the study of lines.
HothouseOrchids_Back

Name: Hothouse Orchids
Size:
 18″ x 19″
Fabric (front): Clover Sunshine by Alison Glass, Kona Violet (sashing), Kona White (background)
Fabric (back): Ludovika from Ikea
Quilting: Straight line quilting – various width bands with invisible thread.

I am entering this one to the appliqué quilt section. You should take a look, I already have a favorite in this category….the one with all the chairs….LOVE IT!!

Do you have a favorite yet??

    I love the way you use the lines in this piece. The colors are lovely but the quilt wouldn’t be as beautiful without the use of those lines. Really great job! Not sure which applique is my favorite (I am entered in that category as well and am feeling seriously out classed!) but am enjoying everyone’s creativity!
