I want to share a quilt that I recently finished. It is a wall quilt, and it started out with some "blueberry fool blocks" that I received in a swap with my friend Clare. Lovely palette of blues...
I started playing with them, forming them into a medallion. Adding some solids and a star.
By then the top reminded me of a norwegian winter landscape: snow and crisp, blue shadows...
So, I added a phrase from a favorite norwegian singer, Anne Grete Preus (in my translation it will say something like: the sun sits low on the horizon, under the tall sky).
The letters are inspired by Tonya.
I had a lot of fun quilting by hand, creating different textures.
Sometimes its fun to start playing with some fabric and see where it takes you. Trusting yourself to create as you go... Trying not to put on a lot of pressure.
Thank you for your visit! And please, enjoy more beautiful and special quilts at the festival here.
