Rosemadonna 2

It is festival time again over at Amy’s Creative Side.It is always an exciting event, with lots of lovely quilts to be seen.

This time I will show you the follow-up of my last entry, which I have simply called Rosemadonna 2, since it is the second in the series, – and the last one, so far.

While I was making the first one, I kept visualizing the design made up in different colourways, so I wanted to try out one of them.

Also, I was not quite satisfied with the proportions of the first one. That one was a kind of experiment, just to see if the idea in my head was possible to make at all, and how to go about it, – a sort of “make-it-up-as-you-go”-project.

This time around I had a rough sketch of the project before I started so I had a few measurements ready before I cut into the fabrics.

I wanted gold and glittering stuff, along with the (almost) white, black and grey, and just a few pinkish parts here and there. I had visualized some quilting on the sides, but that did not work out as the parts became too stiff to drape the way I wanted them to. So the two layers of loose flaps on the sides are not quilted separately.

I also had the roses completely opened by sewing the tips of the petals down.

The top part came out a bit “light” compared to the bottom part, so I added the pearls to have more balance.

This is the 7th  Blogger’s Quilt Festival, and this will also be my 7th entry.
