I was rather exicted to see that this year’s Sew-vivor was quilting themed. It’s hosted over at the lovely Family Ever After Blog .
For my audition piece, I’m picking my Indelible Beauty Mini Quilt that I just finished up because it is a piece that has made me the happiest this year (I almost thought about using my Patchwork Weekender).
This mini quilt measures 26″ square and features fabrics from Indelible by Katarina Roccella for AGF. It was foundation pieced using templates designed by Dan at Piece and Press. It was pieced and quilted this month (July of 2014). The quilting is pretty minimal (for me) with lines echoing the backgrounds in each arc as well as one full circle echo. I simply loved the hand of the Art Gallery base cloth too much to layer on quilting lines. I do love how the light quilting and the circle echo give the center piecing just a tiny bit of lift:
I always forget just how much I love foundation paper piecing until I get a new project started. This first inner arc already had me falling for this quilt:
For those of you new to my creative chaos here’s a little about me:
My name is Allegory and I feel there are two things you can never have enough of: Halloween fabric and gummi bears. I have far too many English Paper Piecing WIPs and while I used to hate hexagons I’m slowly becoming convinced that they might be the best shape ever.
Also…I really want an Alpaca farm.
I think I covered all the key points there.
Thank you to Rach for hosting this great event! And thanks to y’all for stopping by to take a look at my entry!
Good luck, y’all!
