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