Since starting this blog I have shared two of my quilt finishes. Both of these special quilts had their beginnings in a Victoria Findlay Wolfe Class at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilting and Fiber Arts. The first class 15 Minutes of Play, was the start of this block:
This block led to 8 more blocks! Because I just Couldn’t get enough of the “Y” seams! LOL! I put in 4 pre printed panels that needed to find a home. I had never set a quilt on the diagonal before. It required a bit of filling, and so I made that up as I went along.
Then there was the border. Another opportunity to use up scraps! In the end, this is how the quilt finished.
Two days of learning to master sewing curves and working out my design. I was marrying some 1980’s fabrics with current fabric selections. A quilt started by Mom as well as a quilt started by me in the 80’s . Good memories of us sewing together. Mom’s favorites: Cardinals, angels, knitting, She was a woman of faith. All of these things were incorporated into this quilt called “For Rose”. My Mom, named Millie, was named “Rose” by my daughter Sarah when she was about 2 years old. It stuck. This quilt is quilted throughout with a Rose design.
The exciting news is that both of the quilts were entered into the Wisconsin Biennale Exhibit at the Wisconsin Quilt Museum and will be a part of an exhibit for Wisconsin artists from July 16 through the early part of October.
What an exciting opportunity this is for me and it makes me think that I am very ready to start another quilt!
