I actually made this quilt last year as part of the Art Glass Gallery Challenge with an Angela Walters panel from her Textures line of fabric. The quilt didn't really have a known destination or reason for being except for completing the challenge. So I gave it to my husband, because there were no flowers or swirls and he liked the colors. So it sits folded over the back of a chair in my living room, unless it's chilly, then my husband wraps up in it.
This past Christmas we had new family members join are Christmas Eve party; my new son-in-law's mom, dad and sister. They fell in love with this quilt. They never realized that quilts could be modern and fun and fit in with today's styles.
It takes quite a bit of time to quilt a quilt like this.
|Aurifil Thread 50wt used on the quilt. Quilted with a domestic machine; Pfaff Quilters Expression 4.0|
|Faux Piped Binding (check out the tutorial here)|
The quilt is 54" x 63", Art Glass Gallery fabrics (Textures by Angela Walters), Quilters Dream Puff batting and lots and lots of Aurifil 50wt thread. The design is my own.
