Blogger's Quilt Festival ~ Encapsulated

For my second entry in The Blogger's Quilt Festival ~ Spring 2015...

I'm going with my most recent finish, still hot off the machine actually!  I thought it would make for a good entry in the ORIGINAL Design Category.

It has gone through many months of change.  It started as a tiny thought that went through many different phases of design.  Just when I thought I was dead in the water, another idea would pop in to my head!  

ENCAPSULATED
48" x 65"

There were so many twists and turns along the way, but so worth it!  I'm in love with the Art Deco vibe.


The center was a thread nightmare!  There were so many threads to bury in the end.  I wanted to keep the center clean, meaning I used white thread!  



You really get a sense of the quilting detail through the back.  Except for the black thread on black...hard to get a good picture of that!

I blogged regularly about this quilt.  If you are interested in reading more here are all the links:

    1. I don't think there is anything better than when a design/quilt finally comes together! It makes the hair pulling so worth it!

  10. I'm in love with the confetti in this design - so cute that it's totally random! The quilt overview reminds me of the layout of a passenger vehicle (but maybe I'm surrounded by a vehicle obsessed kid!) Excellent design.

    1. Isn't it funny how we see things differently?! This quilt and the design were a process…long…but I couldn't have been happier with it! I enjoy trying to create something that is different. The confetti or small squares are another fun technique that I love to do.
