I've decided to enter my 'City Sunset' quilt in the Art Quilt category. I have recently blogged about this beauty here, so let's recap!
This quilt was a labor of love! Love of improv, love of hand dyed fabrics, love of color and love of quilting! My daughter, Britt and I hand dyed these fabrics in our basement. I knew it was time to use some of those beautiful stacks of freshly dyed fabrics and so I did...
'City Sunset'. I should explain the name. I see a sunset in these colors (others see sherbet!). With the tiny bits of gray, I see sidewalks and roads in the city. Its a stretch I know, but it fits.
This quilt measures 49" x 62". It sat around for a few weeks until I came up with a quilting plan. Sometimes that is the hardest part. I ended up machine quilting a crazy wonky design.
I'm not sure how to describe my process. I get an idea and go with it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't! For me, this works. Its fun to let go and be free. Like the 70's!
I am excited to meet lots of new quilting friends and would love to hear from you! Thank you for stopping by!
