Quilt Market Quilt

This Giveaway is now closed.



While I wasn't able to attend quilt market this year, one of my quilts did make the trip!  I think this quilt was made from start to finish in about 6 days, and was certainly the fastest quilting I've done in some time.  Elyse from Westminster fabrics asked if I could make a last minute quilt to display in their booth, and of course I couldn't say no.  A day later this giant stack of fabrics arrived at my doorstep and I got to work.  


While admittedly  these are not fabrics I am typically drawn to, it was fun playing with fabric that were a little different style.  The fabric is Camille by Melissa White for Westminster fabric, and as a whole really plays well together, with the bright bold fabrics being balanced with a few more muted patterns.  It sort of gives me a vintage sheets sort of vibe, with maybe some Kaffe Fasset-ness thrown in.  


I used my starburst cross block tutorial, and decided to play with color value, by pairing up the light and dark fabrics, so each fabric was represented equally.

Thanks Lee for snapping this pic while you were at quilt market!!

Here it is in the Westminster booth at market, see it there in the center??

  15. Oh, MY! I just saw this quilt in a Rowan ad on the back cover of the Quiltmaker January/February '13 magazine and fell in love. It took me a while to track it down, but I was determined and I found it/you! LOVE IT. I hope to make one of these, someday (maybe this year)...?
