This week my quilt “Blue Night” was voted first in the theme Winter Landscapes. I was thrilled, of course. A big thank you to all those who voted.
I was even more thrilled when I was informed that there was a prize.
Vicki Welsh, who makes glorious hand dyed fabrics, was a sponsor of the event, and offered one of her fabric packages as a prize. I was even allowed to make my own choice between all the colour combinations available in her Etsy shop.
I had a hard time choosing, but landed on the pink packet in the end.
The quilt “Blue Night” was made of half inch fabric squares using a collage technique. Lots of colour variations are needed when making these collage quilts, so this packet will be a great start for a new project. Thank you, Vicki, and thank you, Michele, for arranging the shows.
Just after the quilt was made, I posted some work-in-progress-pictures on my website so that you can get an impression of how it was made.
One of the inspirations for the quilt was a class I took from Mr Edmund Cluett, a very talented fiber artist. He used to have a website showing some of his work, but it is no longer online. However, on this page I have posted a suggestion on how you might still be able to see some of his work.
