Perspective - Bloggers Quilt Festival Entry


Perspective's Glam Shot
According to the eye candy on IG the past few days, it's Quilt Market time again and that also means it's time for linking up an entry (and more importantly - browsing around) over at Amy's Creative Side Blogger's Quilt Festival 

FMQ detail sparkles
I chose "Perspective" for the Small Quilt Category measuring 48"x60".   You can nominate it for viewer's choice - open until Oct 29  here, I'd sure appreciate that! 
AMH and I at QuiltCon 2015
I pretty much adore anything Anna Maria Horner and was tickled when she shared my quilt on her Facebook page  and used all caps to describe it as GORGEOUS (such a fangirl moment)

The fussy cutting and fussy quilting was well worth the extra effort and honestly what made it more fun to make.  Stripes can be tricky and rewarding when used strategically. 
Shopping Tower of Bolts 
I had to laugh at myself for titling the blog post "Loominous - slow progress" considering the entire quilt took 10 days start to finish.  The renaming of the quilt to Perspective had to do party with the vista view looking down on Capitola Village but also applies to the way we view time - task - life.   You can read more backstory  here and here.
Auditioning Aurifil
Having my quilt hang at the store display was really nice - and since our MQG chapter holds their monthly meetings at Hart's, I just had to point to it for show and tell.

  1. oh yeah! One of my favorite quilts of yours!

  2. Really love your use of stripes and color here. I am an AMH Fangirl too;)

  3. I love your quilt. I think it is really clever and a great use of the loominous (I so want to make a loominous dress!)

  4. It was the color palette that first caught my eye...unexpected and so pleasing! A beautiful quilt!
